In the Schools: May 16 Canton Edition

MHS Students Honored at MIT

Three students were honored at a special ceremony of The Cambridge Science Festival presented by Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) on Sunday, May 1. 

The Curiosity Challenge is a science contest that invites students to explore their curiosity and to be creative. The challenge was designed to promote an interest in students who may or may not be drawn to science. Students were asked to write, to take a picture or draw what they are curious about. MHS winners were curious about tornadoes (Alexander H.), liquid eyeliner (Jessica F.) and snow (Christina Y).  

The students, their parents and teachers were invited to MIT for an awards ceremony and brunch with keynote speaker Mitchel Resnick, Lego Papert Professor of Learning Research and Head of Lifelong Kindergarten group at the MIT Media laboratory. All the winners’ works were on exhibit throughout the day.
