On Friday, Holy Redeemer Middle School science teacher Beth Cohen organized a unique event for the students, a Reverse Science Fair.

The fair featured scientists who presented ideas and experiments to the students while the students took notes.

The scientists gave various demonstrations from astronomy to biology and from physics to engineering.

“It is so exciting to see all kind of science,” said Cohen. “I hope our children will walk out of the fair with new ideas to try at home. I want them to think, ‘I wonder if I …’ and then go and try it.”

The scientists that participated in the event were from JPL, Caltech, the Los Angeles Park Rangers, the Glendale Police Department, Huntington Medical Research Institute and St. Francis High School.

The event was designed to introduce the students to people who use science in their every day lives. Holy Redeemer encourages students to consider math and science as majors in college and careers in life.
