MCSD, MCC host Project Share May 12-13

Students in Marshalltown and surrounding districts are working hard to prepare for the annual Project Share held May 12-13 at Marshalltown Community College.

MCC and Marshalltown Schools co-sponsor the two-day event, which provides a fun venue for area students involved in enrichment programs to show off their hard work. These high-ability students showcase their independent study projects and have the opportunity to share their expertise with a supportive audience.

This year 210 students from 13 area schools are registered for Project Share, with third and fourth grade students attending May 12 and fifth and sixth graders on May 13.

Each day begins with the Grout Museum’s Jason Dornbush presenting “Mad Mixtures”. The rest of the day consists of break-out sessions presented by various experts in a college-like atmosphere.

Generous donations from Fisher Controls and Lennox are covering the cost of the opening speaker and hands-on student materials.
