Spectacular Schechter Science Showcase


Over two hundred people came to KSDS on a Sunday to explore science in 18 18-minute presentations (on 12/18) led by parents, alumni and faculty. Kicked off by a presentation from the Maryland Science Center, participants then attended three sessions filled with demonstrations and hands-on activities. Bouncing balls, bubbles and fans helped students understand how molecules move with KSDS alumnae Casey Gelber while in other session participants learned tricks and tips on improving their memory with KSMS Learning Specialist Cheri Crow. Liquids bubbled and fizzed like potions in a cauldron as KSDS parent Dr. Stu Levine explored basic chemistry. In other rooms, students built telescopes, explored the wonders of the human heart and learned about how sounds were generated.
