Science Showcase Night

Last night was truly inspiring. The students from the Research in Science class shone brightly during the Science Showcase Night, where they presented their year-long research projects to the greater Mount de Sales and scientific community. With several distinguished guests from various fields in attendance, the students demonstrated exceptional poise and confidence while answering questions about their work. These budding scientists have such a bright future ahead! A huge thank you to the dedicated mentors who guided the students throughout the year on their remarkable projects! 🌟
