Partners with Franklin Institute to Benefit Pre-K–6th  

 Meadowbook, PA, March 2, 2016—On Saturday, March 12th from 10 am to 2 pm, the Meadowbrook School will host its annual Science Expo, a family-friendly event that is open to the public. This year’s theme is FLIGHT, and everyone in attendance is invited to complete a scavenger hunt for prizes, attend science programs, and participate in activities planned around the concept of flight. Additionally, representatives from Philadelphia’s Franklin Institute will visit the school and provide a live, one-hour science presentation entitled Flight. This event, perfect for pre-K and elementary-aged children, will take place at 11 am and 12:30 pm and is also open to the community.

Meadowbrook’s Science Expo is a non-competitive exhibition of students’ science collections, projects, and scientific experiments. All students, from pre-K to sixth grade, are encouraged to participate. This year’s expo will be on display in the Shuttleworth Gymnasium, and it will feature exhibits within the categories of life, earth, and physical science. The projects presented by Meadowbrook’s sixth graders will employ the Scientific Method, and students will demonstrate a thorough understanding of creating a hypothesis, conducting procedures, making observations, and formulating conclusions.

Science teacher, Mrs. Janice Mockaitis, oversees the Science Expo each year with a dedicated commitment to students’ learning. Notes Mrs. Mockaitis, “Meadowbrook’s science program is designed to help develop students’ innate curiosity of their world, acquire scientific knowledge, obtain scientific habits of mind, and encourage a positive attitude towards science.”

Additionally, the Meadowbrook School will host a special Admissions Open House over the duration of the Science Expo on 3/12, from 10 am to 2 pm (walk-ins welcome). Attendees will have the opportunity to visit the science exhibition during the tour. To register, please  contact Karen DiFelice at  215-884-3238 X132, and/or visit
