The Inaugural Comenius Project Fair
On Thursday, May 12, Moravian Academy held the inaugural Comenius Project Fair on the Merle-Smith Campus.
Students who have completed Comenius Projects, which are independent research projects guided by faculty mentors, presented their work to friends, families, faculty, and other community members at the Project Fair.
