Science Friday might be new to West Side, but it’s actually been a radio program on NPR for 25 years! Hosted by scientist, Ira Flatow, the show aims to bring science topics to the dinner tables across America. Mr. Flatow teaches that science changes because our knowledge changes. The fun part is that science is debatable! So, 5th grade teacher, Ms. Gerver and Library Media Specialist, Ms. Fraiberg, have welcomed Science Friday into their classroom, where students are encouraged to ask themselves “What are the science topics that interest you? Afterall, you are all budding scientists.” Students will research topics they wonder about, and share their findings with their classmates and families. Science Friday sounds like a lot of science FUN!
