    O'Maley Innovation Middle School students were invited by Raytheon Company to participate in the ribbon-cutting ceremony and opening of Raytheon's MathAlive! exhibit at Boston's Museum of Science on May 29.  The MathAlive! exhibit helped our students see the relevance of mathematics and science in so many things they love – skateboarding, video games, sports, animation and so much more.  The students reported how cool it was to explore math in such a creative way.
