ABOVE: To conclude the science demonstration, Melisa Westerman serenades two birthday boys from the audience with the “Happy Birthday” tune by throwing metal chimes on the ground. Each chime played a note from the song, resulting in a haphazard, unique rendition of the classic birthday song. L&T photos/Victoria Calderon
