On Friday, November 2nd, approximately one hundred and fifty 7th and 8th grade students from seven Lutheran schools across West Michigan will converge upon West Michigan Lutheran High School for a day of hands-on science.  This sixth annual ‘Science Day’ event brings middle school students together to showcase science projects, and encourage them to have fun with science.
