Volcanoes, ice, plants, popcorn, root beer -- you name the subject, it was probably covered in our school's science fair this evening. What a great opportunity for the students to explore something they are interested in -- in a way they don't often get a chance. The variety of projects and how they were represented was amazing! It was wonderful to see all that creativity linked with the "pedestrian" scientific method. What most impressed me were the number of projects that used common, household items. The science of what surrounds us every day is just as fascinating as anything else.
