Volcanoes are still exploding!

Last April I blogged about the after-school programs 1st Annual Science Fair. This past week the children in our elementary and middle school programs were at it again. I was a judge for about 16 projects and found that the kids had really gotten into the experiments again this year. Some of the projects that stood out were

  • 5 year olds explaining the idea of density!
  • Finding out the science behind cleaning up oil spills
  • "Fungus on the Rise" - describing where and why fungus grows.
All of the children did a fantastic job and spent a lot of time learning about there experiments and creating artistic displays. There was even a volcano with fake grass growing all around the base.

Great job again this year. I am so proud of how much time and energy the kids put into their experiments.
