hasnít been represented at the Chicago Public Schools City Science Fair since
they gave up their 7th and 8th graders, but every year Mr. Lopatka sees one or
two former students representing their new school. This year was no exception, April
and James were there calling him as he was setting up a
table for the judges. Mr. Lopatka has been on John Kent's
Science Fair Exhibit committee for years. Now that he has retired, one of the
his biggest rewards is
seeing former students carrying on the Randolph tradition of science
excellence. Another great thing about the fair is meeting new students,
like this 8th grader that fled war torn Bosnia and
came here just 3 years ago without knowing any English, and here she is in the
city wide fair. The most fun comes from working with John's helpers.

gave us a hand for a few days. We had fun.
The following pictures were taken on Monday when the Exhibit committee packs up everything for next year.
