PS452 at the CSD3 Science Expo! The CSD3 Science Expo was on Saturday, March 19th. Our District celebrated the progression of science learning by bringing teachers, students, families from Kindergarten through Grade 12 together to showcase exemplary CSD3 student science projects to each and to our neighbors. PS 452 students from K225, K208 and 5th grade showcased their work at the fair. K208 presented their final work from their Fabric Science Study. K225 presented their work from their study of things that come from the forest. Fifth graders wanted to figure what the optimum amount of moisture is necessary to grow plants. They thought it would be the 'wet environment', however they learned that the 'very wet' environment was the most optimal.
