Wellesley Education Foundation (WEF), the nonprofit outfit that promotes Wellesley Public Schools, is organizing a Wellesley Science & Technology Expo for April 5, 2014 that will convert Wellesley High School into a science museum for a day.
The townwide event “will promote hands-on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) learning through exhibits, lectures, movies, and demonstrations at Wellesley High School.” Residents of all ages are invited to take part in this event, which will draw on the expertise of those at local colleges and businesses, and from the community at large.
It might be a nice complement as well to the annual WEF Spelling Bee, which often challenges participants with oodles of scientific words.
Smaller school-focused science fairs featuring student projects or outside demonstrations (like at Hunnewell Elementary’s Science Night in recent years) have also been held in town.
