Pi Mu Omega Elementary Science Program

Willingboro, NJ ------- On Saturday, February 23, 2008, under the direction of Deidre Pearson, Pi Mu Omega held an Elementary Science Program. The science fair was geared toward elementary students (ages 5-12 years) providing them with hands on experience with 10 different science experiments. It was held at the John F. Kennedy Center, Willingboro, New Jersey and about 50 members of the community attended, including adults and children. The event commenced with a movie, entitled Masters of Invention, about African-American scientists and inventors. Throughout the three hour program, small science projects were conducted. The science fair also taught the participants about important figures in Black History. At the conclusion of the program, each child received a booklet about 25 African-American inventors that changed our world.
