The highlight of our week this week was our big dinner fundraiser for Freedom House on Tuesday night. We spent the day preparing dinner (under the guidance of Bee Roll, owner of Beezy’s Cafe) and setting up and then we returned to Project23 (an awesome event space in Ypsilanti) to serve the meal to friends and families. We raised $525 for Freedom House, an organization that provides shelter and critical support to refugees seeking asylum. We’re tremendously grateful to all of the families and teachers who supported us in this project.
During the rest of the week, students worked on their independent science projects. They are doing background research, coordinating the logistics of their experiments, and beginning to draft their abstracts.
