The Science Fair at CHSD170's Greenbriar School Showcases Student Work

Students from Chicago Heights School District 170’s Greenbriar School presented a diverse group of presentations detailing a wide-ranging variety of studies at the annual Science Fair held on Monday in the school’s gymnasium.

More than 100 people, comprised of community members, parents, staff, students, and administrators attended the event.

Students in grades 6-8 presented projects displaying content addressing the physical, biological and earth sciences, while students in grades K-5 hosted a series of “hands-on” Science activities.

The presentations reflected experiments and research conducted throughout the year. Students created their presentations to explain their hypotheses and concluding results.

I could not be more proud of my student's accomplishments,” said Laura Wolframski, Greenbriar School’s junior high Science teacher. “They became scientists on Monday with an event that gets bigger every year, and this exciting educational opportunity inspired them to embrace what they have learned and to share their knowledge with all of the attendees.”

Principal Joe Taylor joined Wolframski in praising the event.

“We would like to thank everyone who took the time to attend this fun and exciting event,” he said.

“Greenbriar School always looks forward to hosting events that involve our students, their parents and families, and other members of the community and enjoy welcoming them in celebrating our students’ success.”
