The Parlin Elementary School held a math and sci­ence night on April 16 for stu­dents and families. Teachers, students, parents and members of the community who work in math and science-heavy ca­reers were in attendance. Also presenting was the Women in Transportation Seminar, an international organization geared towards getting girls and young women interesting in engineering and transporta­tion careers.

Other companies and or­ganizations from throughout the Boston area gave Parlin students hands-on demon­strations on math and science. More than 100 students and their families attended the event.
