Bay Area students will be joining us for an international science pantomime.

Via a live-link to the Genoa Science Festival our students will connect with students in Italy. Students will pantomime science concepts through live-link technology. Bay Area students will guess the concepts – and vice versa, as they connect across the world through technology and overcome the language barrier with the universal language of science.
