5 Things: Wine and Cheese Festival and STEM

From a cheese festival this weekend to continued work through the STEM program; we have what you need to know in Marlborough right here.

1. The 8th Annual Vin Bin Wine and Cheese Festival will be held this Saturday from 2 to 6 p.m. It sounds like a fun time right in the downtown and is free to anyone interested.

2. A rugby team has come through with 200 pounds of food for the United Way of Tri-County in Marlborough.

3. Something must have been in the water, or in this case the oil, as it was a big day for accidents Wednesday. Did you have any close calls?

4. Marlborough continues to lag behind in MCAS scores. This comes as the district continues a focus on STEM Early College High School Program which is attempting to bring a more hands-on style of education to the classroom.

5. Speaking of STEM, the measures of success of this investment have not fully materialized. However, one solid piece of information has surfaced: during last year's engineering fair, 49 percent of high school freshman who were enrolled in STEM participated. Only 7 percent of their cohort not enrolled in STEM participated.
