Corpus Christi and Saint Mary’s School Team Up for Annual “Science Day” on May 17

SPRING LAKE, Mich., April 20, 2012 – Students from Corpus Christi Catholic School in Holland and Saint Mary’s School in Spring Lake are teaming up for the third year in a row to present their science projects  at the annual “Science Day” on May 17, from 9:30 a.m. to 2:15 p.m. at Corpus Christi School, 12100 Quincy Street, Holland.

The event brings together students from fifth-through-eighth grades at both schools to showcase their science projects and unit projects they developed during the school year to share with their counterparts in an afternoon of science inquiry.

“The students take ownership in what they have learned because they are responsible for presenting a capsule summary of their projects,” said Amy Giroux, teacher with Saint Mary’s School.

As a science teacher, Giroux takes pride in watching students articulate what they learned from their projects.  She sees a sense of accomplishment they experience in a job well done.
