Students in fourth grade through ninth grade demonstrated their scientific knowledge and curiosity at the inaugural Tuxedo Park School Science Exposition during the evening event Thursday, Feb. 21, 2019.
The expo challenged the students from fourth through ninth grade to scientifically investigate the four core disciplines of science; physical, life, earth, and space science. Participants thoughtfully engineered projects that displayed the data they collected and the knowledge they learned.
Science teacher Tyler France commented on the high degree of preparation and performance of the 'scientists" delivered.
"The middle school and upper school students conducted thorough and detailed research on their topics," said Mr. France. "I was impressed by the students' ability to present in such a professional manner. It was a proud moment to see all the students and families so engaged in the experiments on display. "
The egg drop was one of the highlights of the night. From the second floor of the of the school's grand staircase, students drop their creative contraptions designed to preserve a raw egg upon landing.
"Being a part of the egg drop felt like being part of an intense athletic game," said Mr. France. "It was a beautiful moment to see the community pull together to support our devoted students."
The inaugural science expo was such a success that Tuxedo Park School is looking forward to making it an annual event.
