New Horizons Elementary Celebrates Science

The New Horizons Elementary School SECME team.

New Horizons Elementary School recently hosted its annual Science & Math Fair Night. The school opened its doors to students, parents and community members to view close to 400 entries to the fair. Students had weeks to prepare their projects and submitted some truly remarkable work.

Approximately 20 of the student’s projects will be entered into Palm Beach County’s Science & Math Fair. Third-grade teacher Jennifer Schuler organized the event and is also responsible for coordinating the efforts of the school’s Science, Engineering, Communication, Mathematics and Enrichment (SECME) after-school program.

The SECME program has met weekly since the beginning of October and has recently been preparing for the district’s Olympiad competition. Two of the teams that entered into the district competition placed third and fourth in the bridges portion of the competition.

Currently, the SECME students are hard at work preparing for their next competition, “Engineer It,” which will be held March 10 at the South Florida Science Center & Aquarium.
