Let’s Talk Science and Career Connections

Recently, Bert Bowes students had the opportunity to work side by side with community experts from the science and technology field to solve a design challenge problem.  This event was organized by Mrs. Petrucci from School District 60 and the Let’s Talk Science Outreach Program.  Bert Bowes would like to thank all the community members for giving up their time to share their stories and expertise with our students.
