The girls entered the Science Fair at their once a week school (we call it Tuesday school ’round here-‘cuz it’s on-you guessed it-Tuesdays!). It was a lot of fun to do-they learned a lot about the scientific method and how to present something-both on their boards and to the judges orally.
S’s project was: Which solution keeps flowers alive the longest?. Conclusion: Regular water worked great, as did the solution with the packet from the store. I was actually very surprised how long the flowers lasted. We also learned that the more color a flower has-the less “vase-life” it has. Interesting!
A’s project was: Which solution makes the biggest bubble?. Conclusion: L.O.C. (Amway) mixed with water did the trick! The bubbles were actually quite strong and huge! This one was a challenge to measure. My mom came up with the fabulous idea to use her Creative Memories circle cutter devise-you’ll see it in the photos. She photo copied it, stuck it in a page protector and then A used a straw to blow the bubbles onto the page protector. She won 2nd place for her entry-her very first ribbon!
