Page 4 THE VILLADOM TIMES II • March 4, 2009 Ridgewood Two village institutions rescue Super Science Saturday Super Science Saturday, Ridgewood’s largest noncompetitive academic event, is the largest science and technology extravaganza in Northern New Jersey. It offers visitors of all ages the opportunity to explore science experiments from dozens of amateur and professional scientists and hundreds of students. Last fall, the future looked cloudy for Super Science Saturday when its Title V federal funding was cut. However, two village institutions, Valley Hospital and the Ridgewood Education Foundation, came to the rescue with a joint grant. Together, they fully funded Super Science Saturday in order to make sure the event could continue for all Ridgewood residents. Thanks to their support, Super Science Saturday will continue this year bigger and better than ever with a full morning of educational exhibits, shows, and demonstrations. This year, Super Science Saturday is scheduled for Saturday, March 7, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Ridgewood High School, 627 East Ridgewood Avenue. Admission, as always, is free. Valley Hospital is Ridgewood’s not-for-profit hospital serving the healthcare needs of more than 440,000 people in our region. As a not-for-profit hospital, Valley is committed to giving back to the community through joint educational opportunities with the Ridgewood Public Schools and through healthcare education and screenings, support groups, and classes to assist those in need. The Ridgewood Education Foundation’s mission is to enhance the quality of education in the Ridgewood Public Schools. Since 1989, the foundation has awarded more than $400,000 in grants for special projects created by forward thinking teachers, parents, students and alumni. A member supported organization, the Ridgewood Education Foundation is an IRC 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation.
