Ridgeview Hosts Science Extravaganza

SPRINGFIELD, Ore. — Students at Ridgeview Elementary School had the chance to learn about the human body Friday.

It was the second annual Ridgeview Science Extravaganza, and the kids got to participate in experiments to learn about how their senses work.

Students from Thurston High School were on hand to help out and guide the kids from station to station.

“We have a station where students are doing fingerprinting and identifying the type of fingerprint that they have. They’ll also be making a graph so they can see in the school who has what kind of fingerprints,” said Dara Brennan, District Science Specialist.

The science extravaganza is organized by a retired teacher and funded by a grant from EWEB, which also loaned some equipment to the program.
