Holmes Elementary students celebrating science

Students at the Oliver Wendell Holmes Elementary School in Dorchester are placing special emphasis on science education this week, with five days of programming and activities designed to inform and excite students about the wonders of the sciences. Organized around the theme of Discover our community, our world and ourselves, the week's events feature classroom lessons, assemblies, students performances, and visitors from the Boston Nature Center, City Fresh Foods, the Children's Museum, Young Achievers School of Math & Science, the Society of Black Engineers, and more. Pictured here, fifth grade student Demitrius Leary of Dorchester plays the role of Matthew Henson, an African-American explorer who helped discover the North Pole in 1909.
