Last Wednesday night was the scene of a "whole-lotta" Science in the Prairie Elementary gym.  Students had been preparing their science fair exhibits over the last month.  2nd through 4th grade students had to come up with their own hypothesis, include procedures, conclusions and some sort of display.  They showcased their work for parents, grandparents, and community members.  Kindergarten and 1st grade students worked as a community on projects.  1st Graders constructed a tropical rainforest and Kindergartners displayed work from their dental health unit.  The gym was open from 6:00-7:30 and was packed for the evening.  Refreshments were served in the cafeteria and it was a great evening of education and entertainment! In the photo Tony and Spencer Schumacher look through the exhibits.
