CARNEYS POINT TWP. — Approximately 800 students and educators attended the 18th annual Kids Inquiry Conference (KIC) recently at Salem Community College.
KIC is a science/communications conference for first through fifth graders. Students engaged in hands-on science experiments run by teams of Woodstown High School students, experienced a science show in the Davidow Theatre and presented science experiments or research that they worked on in class.
This year’s young scientists were from Alloway Township School, Field Street School, Penn Beach Elementary School, Mary Shoemaker School and Upper Pittsgrove School.
The event was sponsored by Chambers Works Partners in Science Program, Salem Community College and the Salem County Bridge Math/Science Committee. KIC is coordinated by SCC graduate Pam Chew, a fourth-grade teacher at Mary Shoemaker School.
