    DNA story of when life gave us lemons
    All citrus fruits can trace their roots to the southeast foothills of the Himalayas, according to DNA evidence. The first citrus trees appeared about eight million years ago, before spreading around the world, say international scientists. The trees eventually gave rise to the fruit on our kitchen tables, from sweet oranges to bitter lemons.

Winter Social Has Been Cancelled!!!!! We're sorry to say that on account of the unseasonably warm weather and rain this week--and the fact that this is the last weekend of the Dilworth Plaza Ice Rink this winter--the 8th annual Winter Social has been cancelled for tomorrow. We're already looking forward to next year when we can reconvene as planned, and on solid ice, to celebrate the mid-year mark with our school community. Please stay tuned for upcoming information about Bache In Bloom on May 10th, and the end-of-the-year Field Day--two great Bache-Martin social events already being planned. We apologize for the last minute schedule change and announcement. We were holding out hope for a deep freeze and no rain.

    Will the First Blood Test for Concussions be a Game Changer?
    Here in Philadelphia, we're still relishing the thrill of long-awaited victory as the ticker tape from the Eagles' Super Bowl parade flutters from the trees. Even as we watched the game, however, we couldn't escape the ever-present risk of brain injuries in football, as several players suffered game-ending hits.

For #BlackHistoryMonth we're looking back at our last summer exhibition Mohamed Bourouissa: Urban Riders, now on view in Paris at Musée d'Art moderne de la Ville de Paris. In 2014, Algerian artist Mohamed Bourouissa worked with the Fletcher Street Urban Riding Club, a North Philadelphia community of young horse riders to stage an equestrian competition he called "Horse Day." Have you seen the Fletcher Street crew featured by Google Pixel 2? #flashbackfriday #fbf

    Google Pixel 2 | Fletcher Street Crew
    When you question your lens on the world, you'll find there's more to people than meets the eye. Part of a wider set of stories that encourage people to question their lens on the world, "Fletcher Street Crew" shows how first impressions rarely show the full picture.

Drawing is a girly thing. If this statement brought out strong feelings in you, this 4-week Barnes class is for you: “Drawing as ‘Feminine’ Practice?” tackles works by Degas and Picasso that were often dismissed in their day as “feminine” and less worthy than paintings. Join us as we explore several contemporary artists, including Kara Walker, Heidi Bucher, and Nancy Shaver, who use the medium to make powerful social and political statements challenging the notion of drawing as "feminine" and "weak." Starts April 9. Space is limited, Register today: bit.ly/drawing-feminine 🎨 Edgar Degas. “Jockey on Horse” (detail), c. 1866–72.
