Cambridge Science Festival!


For the third April in a row, Birches School participated in the Cambridge Science Festival. Eighteen of our students (the largest number ever) blended science and technology curriculum by leading visitors through three exhibitions. By utilizing a range sensor and a vibrating motor, hardwear provided by Boston Embedded, students designed The Code Cracker : a gesture lock for opening electronic doors; The Portable Personal Alarm : a device for protecting personal belongings; and The Maze Navigator : a blindfolded sensor-and-vibration game. Congratulations to our Science Specialist Katherine Parisky and to our Engineering and Software Specialist Andrea Krajewska for their guidance in this curriculum.
