Science Fair Help – Ongoing: Cook-Wissahickon School is looking for enthusiastic volunteers to help support our students in our Science Fair program! It is not necessary for volunteers to have a scientific background. Anyone can help by simply assisting the students as they organize their materials, research their topics, and gain an understanding of the scientific method. Volunteers will be in the classroom, under the direction of our two science teachers and a lead mentor from our partner iPraxis, who also supports our Science Fair projects.Those interested can David Furioni at, or you sing up for days/times you can volunteer on this Doodle calendar:
