WES Hosts Book Fair And Science Night

On Monday, Feb. 10, Wellington Elementary School held its Scholastic Book Fair as well as Science Night. The South Florida Science Center was on hand with 20 interactive science activities, demos and experiments. The kids enjoyed dropping different size “meteorites” into a simulated moon terrain to measure crater size, observing and touching a Madagascar hissing cockroach, watching a volcano erupt and much more. Also on display were the students’ science projects. At the same time, the book fair was being held in the media center. Students and their families were able to purchase books, while the PTO sold pizza and ice cream.
