Young scientists were given an opportunity to pick up a few pointers from professionals, those working in the field, during Marengo Elementary School’s annual Super Science Night last Wednesday.
Passing on their knowledge were an assortment of experts in science world, including one presenter, who talked about how magnets work to another offering his insight on exploration to planet Mars. The night of educational fun also provided information about sound waves, physics, how rattlesnakes find their prey and much more.
Lisa Robinson, a third grade teacher at Marengo, and Jay Bromley organized the event that provided educational fun and knowledge for those on hand.”
“It’s a night in which kids get a chance to learn all kinds of things about science, things they don’t necessarily learn in the classroom, things that are practical, things that they might want to do when they grow up,” explained Robinson. “They’re able to do something without the restrictions of a classroom. They can speak to professionals, people who have a deep knowledge of whatever the topic is.”
