MMI to hold Open House on Sunday


(Freeland, PA – April 16, 2015) – Students at MMI Preparatory School will showcase their projects at the school’s annual Open House on Sunday, April 19, from 2 to 4:30 p.m. The event is open to the public.

Each year, MMI students are challenged with preparing special research projects, which are displayed at the annual Open House event. All MMI students, from sixth-graders to seniors, will display, explain and demonstrate their projects in classrooms and locations throughout the school.

Visitors will be able to observe a variety of student projects, including many in the areas of literature, mathematics, science and social studies. In addition, food projects, prepared primarily by foreign language students, will be featured. The food, which will be available for sampling, will be served in an atmosphere authentic to the nation of the food’s origin.

Non-food projects are open to the public from 2 to 4 p.m., and culinary projects are open to the public from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m.

MMI students prepare all projects under the guidance of faculty advisers. Each project is then evaluated during Open House by a panel of judges from Penn State Hazleton. MMI’s in-house chef will evaluate food projects. The winners are then honored at a special assembly.
