The Upper Elementary class had a special visitor from Princeton University. It was a delight to have Dr. Minjie Chen give a presentation on the Chinese New Year.Dr. Chen used a Chinese Zodiac mystery game,“Guessing Your Zodiac Animal,” to explain the concept of the binary system to the students. Children and teachers were amazed and learned much from Dr. Chen’spresentation. We thank Issac Chen’s parents, Zhen and Junjie Chen for arranging Dr. Chen’s visit.
Dr. Chen is the Project Cataloger in the East Asian Studies Rare Book and Special Collections Department at Princeton University.
