The Spring Carnival

The Spring Carnival brought games, food, and friends together in the Bronx Science courtyard.
Colorful decorations transformed the Bronx Science courtyard into a carnival straight from the movies.

For Bronx Science students, the Spring Carnival marks the end of AP season and the true arrival of Spring. The sun comes out and students gather in the courtyard to enjoy a lunch or free period full of great food, games, and decorations. This year’s Spring Carnival was held on Friday, May 24th, 2024. Students were surprisingly successful at the teacher dunk tank, but fared less well trying to jump and duck at the newest inflatable challenge. For those less athletic, free ice cream and cotton candy was a big draw.
