A science expo will be organized at Croton-Harmon High School for kids of all ages. Here’s the info:
“The Croton-Harmon Education Foundation (CHEF), in conjunction with the Croton-Harmon School District PTAs and Booster Club, will host a district-wide Experience Science celebration. The event will provide students from all grade levels with a forum to learn about, teach each other, and practice science in a fun and engaging way.
Experience Science will be held on Friday, May 13, 2011 at Croton-Harmon High School, from 5:30 p.m.- 8:30 p.m. and is open to residents of all ages. There will be 15-20 hands-on science experience stations with student research and interactive experiments. Some Experience Science Stations include:
• Test Your Steady Hand: Explore and build electric circuits.
• How does oil pollution affect wildlife and the environment?
• How Does Your Garden Grow? Observe and learn how plants grow differently when
started naturally with a bit of dirt, sun and water and when helped along with a heating
mat. Learn about osmosis and propagation. Kids are welcomed to take home a
sunflower seedling, a new ivy plant started by propagation or plant a seed.
• Reuse it and Make Music – make musical instruments using recycled materials

Croton-Harmon Police are bringing a radar gun to see how fast the ball goes.
• Dr. Gerald Ardito from PVC Middle School will be demonstrating rockets
