Our Science Fair was held on Thursday, February 12. We have been working hard on our projects for six weeks! We were judged on the following:
Following the Scientific Method
Communication with the judges
Special thanks to our judges: Paul, John, Linda, Tyler, Debbie, and Cristie.
Elizabeth and Kailani were trying to find out which liquid dissolves aspirin fastest---Diet Coke, of course!
Emily and Linzey were teaching us how to make recycled paper.
Wyatt and Ryan W. found that the Energizer battery lasts the longest!
Katie and her partner wanted to know which balls bounced higher---rubber, or leather.
Ryan K. and his partner thought that children who could read could get the childproof caps off of pill bottles the best, because they could read the directions. But that didn't matter, because they wouldn't read the directions anyway!
We all knew Elly and Eli would be partners! They did an experiment on getting a whole egg into a jar.
Addie and her partner had a project titled, "Whoo's In the Food Chain?" They opened owl pellets to see what they ate! Where do you get owl pellets? Online, of course!
Tyler and his partner thought it would be fun to see if they minds were affected by lack of sleep. During a sleep over, they did tests with reading, math, and memory. After staying up 5 hours after their bedtime, they were tested again. At 7:00 a.m., they got up and did the tests again. Reading and math were not affected, but memory was! So if you can't remember things, you're probably not getting enough sleep!
LUKE WANTED TO KNOW IF AN EARTHWORM WOULD SURVIVE AFTER BEING CUT IN HALF. OF COURSE! THEY HAVE 5 HEARTS!
WHICH FRUIT PRODUCES THE HIGHEST VOLTAGE? IT'S NOT A CITRUS FRUIT LIKE YOU WOULD THINK, IT'S AN APPLE! KADEN DID A GREAT JOB ON HIS PROJECT!
GAVIN AND HIS PARTNER, GREG (WHO WAS ABSENT THE DAY OF THE SCIENCE FAIR), WANTED TO KNOW WHICH PAPER AIRPLANES FLY THE BEST.
CAITLIN AND HER PARTNER HAD A GREAT PROJECT TITLED "WHO SAYS ALL SHADOWS ARE BLACK?"
LIZ TESTED THE BOILING POINTS OF DIFFERENT SOLUTIONS.
HOW TO USE A SOLAR POWERED BUILDING WAS THE PROJECT OF BEN AND HIS PARTNER.
SARAH HAD A FUN PROJECT ON WHICH ANIMAL WAS EASIEST TO TAKE CARE OF---CATS OR DOGS.
BRANDON AND BROOK DID THEIR PROJECT ON THE GAUSSIAN GUN.
KELI WANTED TO KNOW WHAT BIRDS LIKE TO EAT. EACH BIRD LIKED DIFFERENT ITEMS, BUT NONE OF THEM LIKED A MIXTURE.
