On April 13th quite a few of our students joined 4/5 Teacher & Science Specialist Katherine Parisky and Technology Specialist Andrea Krajewska for our annual appearance at the Cambridge Science Festival. The event included 113 participants but only four K-8 schools of which we were one. It was held at the Cambridge Rindge & Latin School’s Field House. The Festival attracted many visitors who were lucky enough to learn from Birches students how to build a compass and use it to find magnetic north.
