Zachary Waxali, Reporter

Clements High School will be hosting its annual Incredible Night of Science on Thursday, March 7 in the auditorium. The event will begin at 6 p.m. and will last until 7:45 p.m. Along with the usual experiments performed by students and teachers, three guest speakers will attend the event. Brian Malow, Pooja J. Jesrani, and Tim Bonner will take the stage to discuss science topics throughout the night.

Brian Malow, science comedian, has worked on Neil deGrasse Tyson’s radio show, as well as contributed many science videos to Time Magazine’s website. He will deliver his stand-up comedy performance for students and faculty.

Houston born native and Clements High School alumni Pooja J. Jesrani is one of NASA’s Flight Directors in mission control. She will speak Thursday evening regarding her experiences overseeing space missions to the International Space Station.

The final guest speaker, Tim Bonner, will be attending to speak about the global oilfield chemical company NALCO Champion.

As the school year is coming to an end, many students are doing all they can to maintain their grades or improve them before the term ends. Science classes are offering bonus points and extra credit for students who attend the event.

“I’m interested to see what it really is, and I’m going because they are offering extra credit for a test grade,” said Senior Gabriel Soto. “I look forward to hearing the science comedian.”

With many teachers motivating their students to attend, the science community expects a large turnout and a fun Thursday evening in the auditorium.
