Students demonstrated how they use inquiry-based learning methods to evaluate, experiment, design and create solutions to real-world problems. The young scientists showed visitors their engineering designs and explained concepts behind their approaches.

Each guest received a “passport” after arriving at the school. They then visited various learning stations set up in classrooms, viewing specimens under a microscope, learning the science behind and pulley systems and making science-related crafts.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools Board of Education members Eric Davis, Rhonda Lennon and Mary McCray attended.
