This Saturday, April 9th the first Fiske Science Fair will be held from 3:30-5:00 p.m. in the Fiske gym. To date there are approximately 70 Fiske-tastic scientists participating in the fair. It should be an amazing afternoon of fun with science. Thank you to our Co-chairs: Anshul Chadda, Hilary Madge, and Manisha Varma for creating this exciting opportunity for Fiske students.
