THIS WEEKEND:

WILLIE HUTCH JONES EDUCATIONAL AND SPORTS PROGRAM SCIENCE FAIR
Saturday, March 9, 2019, 11 am–3 pm

The Willie Hutch Jones Educational and Sports Program (WHJESP) and the Burchfield Penney Art Center are partnering for the fourth year on the Annual WHJESP Science Fair at Burchfield Penney Art Center on March 9, 2019. The science fair features hypothesis to theory presentations based on our annual theme, which for 2019 is “Power Up.” Local middle and high school students in the greater Buffalo area are being encouraged to participate in the event.

The goal, since the inception of the WHJESP Science Fair, is to provide an opportunity for student-led inquiry and give kids hands-on experience with the scientific method. Our hope is to potentially help students spark or nurture their interest in pursuing Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math (STEAM) opportunities on a collegiate level or even as a future career. For over 34 years the WHJESP after-school and summer programs uniquely reach an underserved population who may not often have access to many of these experiences, which have always been provided at no cost.

The still life will only be on display during the workshop hours. 

Participants bring their own supplies to sketch, draw, paint, write poetry, and or photograph the still life. 

No instructor will be teaching.  This is a creative platform to be inspired by.  Still Life workshops are 2 ½ hours in length, intended for families, college students, and creative individuals.  This is a special family event for all ages. Email Kathy Shirokki for more info at shirokkg@buffalostate.edu
