One thing about elementary school science fairs: you never know what you’ll encounter. This year’s fair at Arrow Heights Elementary School was no exception.
Invited, for the second time, as a judge I had a great time looking at the experiments dreamed up by local students from tests for bacteria on household items to an experiment that saw a Grade 4 student isolating and extracting raw DNA from pea plants to a wind tunnel, a marketing preference test and, of course, volcanoes.
I know all the other judges had a great time, too, as most of them were — like me — repeats.
Naturally, I also saw this as an opportunity to snap a photos when I wasn’t judging the children’s experiments. You can see the results of my photographic efforts below:
