Garrison Principal Stephanie Impellittiere expressed pride in all of the participants. “As we explore the world of science and look to helping students reach higher standards in this field, it is clear after seeing this year’s projects that our children are ready to face the exciting challenges that the world of science has to offer. Teachers, mentors and parents helped our students learn about their topics and reach their hypotheses. This enrichment experience was beneficial for everyone who participated in this year’s Science Fair.”
