The fourth through sixth graders at St. Joseph Parish School held their annual Science Expo on Friday, March 1.

Traditionally, the fourth graders work on their project with little help from parents and then in fifth grade, students work completely on their own to do their projects. The sixth graders take the concept of science a step further and create their own invention or innovation. This year, they had to pitch their idea to the "sharks" in our own version of the Shark Tank show.
