We’ve all rolled out of bed on those dreadful, snowy days and wished for one of the famous, make my day, snow days. Then, you walk outside and as soon as that first blast of cold ice hits, you wonder why school hasn’t been cancelled for the day. Well, young Zachary didn’t just sit around and wonder what makes a snow day an actual snow day. This 7th grader from NYC Lab School took the investigation by the horns.
NYC has a record low number of snow days. From 2000-2009, public schools in NYC have only closed down three times due to snow. Zachary Maxwell, with the help from his father, has made a documentary dissecting the Anatomy of a Snow Day. This 40 minute video shows and describes the reasons and decision making for the declaration of snow days from public schools. This really shows the public that when it comes to problem solving and investigations, age doesn’t matter. You go, Zachary!
