Title I Office Honors High School Student Science Helpers

A pizza party and science demonstrations were held at Explora.

The APS Title I Office on Friday thanked the 140 high school students who help facilitate Family Science Nights at the district’s Title I elementary and middle schools.

“We had a pizza party for them and invited local officials, including members of the APS Board of Education, to join us in thanking these volunteer high school students who help present science nights on about 30 topics each year,” said Stefanie McDermott of the Title I Office.

Students got the chance to see some of the presenters from the Explora Science Center and Children’s Museum demonstrate science topics and to tour the museum.

“We just wanted to thank these volunteers for their help,” said Bettina Eklund, also from the APS Title I Office.
