Wading River School students learn that science is fun with educational lessons from ‘Mr. Fish’

A special Arts-in-Education science-themed presentation at Wading River School helped to excite and inspire students to embrace essential scientific concepts.

“Mr. Fish” (John Lepiarz) created visual images for the young audience members to get them to think about cause and effect, aerodynamics, variation, diversity, structure and function. His awe-inspiring magic tricks using props such as bubbles and balloons and skills learned as a professional circus performer were both educational and entertaining.

According to Principal Louis Parrinello, his return visit served as a catalyst to encourage and motivate students to work on their projects for the Feb. 28 schoolwide science fair.
