Seniors Clement Doucette and Lauren Eadie traveled to Portugal with five students from Newton South High School for the 20th annual UNESCO Young Scientists Conference. The conference’s theme centered on “Intangible Cultural Heritage.” Doucette and Eadie created a video highlighting traditions in Hudson while students from Newton South recorded a music playlist focusing on traditional American musical styles.
The American students were joined by students from five other nations, including Portugal, Spain, Andorra, Germany, and Italy. While in Portugal, the students from Hudson and Newton South visited the cities of Lisbon and Coimbra in addition to the conference city of Santarém.
