BAY RIDGE — You may have heard that certain kinds of soda can corrode your teeth, but Molly O’Connor, a fourth grader at St. Patrick School in Bay Ridge, can prove it!
Also, did you know that reports about the Greenhouse Effect and its impact on the earth’s atmosphere are accurate?
Sixth grader Matthew Kulaka knows because he tested it himself!
The students joined many of their classmates in researching topics and conducting experiments as part of the school’s recent Science Fair, a popular part of the annual Catholic Schools Week celebration. The best part was that O’Connor, Kulaka and the other budding scientists were able to share their findings with peers, parents and the community during the fair.
The Science Fair was just one of the fun-filled learning activities that drew crowds of visitors during the weeklong celebration, held Jan. 29 through Feb. 3.
Other activities included an art show, “Career Day” and the school’s annual Open House.
Principal Andrea D’Emic said she was pleased with the level of work produced by the students, who were proud to have their projects displayed for all to see.
