MMI Preparatory School will host its annual Open House this Sunday, March 26 from 2:00-4:30 P.M. The public is invited to attend the event where students will showcase their projects.
Each year, MMI students are challenged with preparing special research projects, which are displayed at Open House. Students in grades six through 12 will display, explain, and demonstrate their projects in classrooms and locations throughout the school.
Visitors will be able to observe a variety of student projects in the areas of literature, mathematics, science, and social studies. In addition, food projects prepared primarily by senior students will be featured. The food, which will be available for sampling, will be served in an atmosphere that fits with the theme and style of food.
Non-food projects are open to the public from 2:00-4:00 P.M., and culinary projects are open to the public from 2:30-4:30 P.M.
MMI students prepare all projects under the guidance of faculty advisers. The Math of the Stars, Sir Isaac Newton’s Discovery of Calculus, A Grimm End: The Origin of Fairy Tales, The Science of Chicken Egg Shells, Harry Potter Foods, and 3D Scanning in the Physical World are just a few of the projects that will be presented this year. Each project is then evaluated during Open House by a panel of judges from Penn State Hazleton. MMI’s in-house chef will evaluate food projects. The winners are then honored at a special assembly.
