Project Share begins Thursday

Project Share 2011.

Marshalltown Community School District is co-sponsoring the annual “Project Share” event with Marshalltown Community College Thursday and Friday, May 10-11, at MCC.

Seventeen area school districts have registered a total of 210 students to attend, with May 10 being designated for third and fourth graders and May 11 designated for fifth and sixth graders.

“Project Share” provides a fun venue for area students who are involved in their school districts’ enrichment programs. During this event these high-ability students showcase their independent study projects and have the opportunity to share their expertise with a supportive audience.

This year the Science Center of Iowa will be presenting “How’d They Do That” which explains the science involved with special effects and optional illusions in movies and film.  Students will also rotate through sessions to learn a variety of topics 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. Students have worked hard to complete their projects and prepare for this fun day of learning.

The public is welcome to attend.
