Saturday, April 6th - Engineering Expo 

We are invited to an event that the Society of Women Engineers (SWE) puts on annually for kids K-8 (and their parents) to inspire interest in science, technology, math, and engineering (STEM)! It is Saturday, April 6, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM at Century II Expo Hall. This FREE event will feature more than 30 booths, many with hands-on activities and items the kids can make and take home. Their goal every year is to reach several thousand kids. This is the 26th year for Expo, so it is a well-established, well organized event or organization spends most of the year planning. No need to sign up- see you there!

Join us between 3pm-10pm at the Chick-Fil-A at Maple/Ridge to support LIGHT Academy! Just let them know that you are there for the fundraising event and they will donate a portion back to support our school!

Let's enjoy Spring at Botanica!
