On Tuesday, Feb. 26, pint-sized scientists lined the high school gymnasium, showing off experiments of all kind, and impressing hundreds of visitors with research aimed at answering many of life’s burning questions, including:
- Why do farts smell?
- Is sugar bad for your teeth?
- Where do butterflies come from?
In all, about 180 scientists from Pinewood and Bradt schools selected topics of interest, solved problems, tested experiments and designed vivid displays describing what they found as part of the 3rd annual Science Fair.
The Science Fair is an experiential, non-competitive event designed to inspire curiosity and interest in the scientific method and experimentation. All students who submitted a project or experiment were recognized for their effort and participation.
Special thanks to the K-5 Science Committee members, Draper Middle School Science Club and Mohonasen High School Science Honors Society members for helping make this a successful event.
