Science Fair Winners!!! from Ben Gamla Palm Beach

Congratulations, Kol HaKavod, to all of our Students and Teachers for participating in our Science Fair last week- pictures attached! Thank you to Mrs. Fishbein for coordinating the Science Fair and to our judges for taking time out of their busy schedules to come out and support our scientific inquiry! We consider ourselves particularly fortunate to merit such prestigious judges;

  • George Lockhart, Department of Charter Schools
  • Tom Medcalf, PBC Science Department  
  • Cristin Tabachnick, PBC Science Department and
