Robert Frost Elementary School was a busy place on Wednesday evening, March 12.  The school’s Math/Science Program hosted Gadget Night, during which time children and their families were allowed and encouraged to take apart broken or unusable household appliances or other mechanical devices that had been donated for this purpose.  Children brought small, basic toolboxes to use while exploring and investigating inner gears and gizmos.  They were also encouraged to create new gadgets using extracted parts and pieces.  The budding scientists were also treated to an Ice Cream Social and a Book Fair.  In addition, Principal Sarah Berka was honored for having been selected as the school’s Great Educator Mentor recipient.
