science fair

D has been participating in a program called Super Saturdays. It's a science exploration program, a full day program where kids from all over the area get together to learn about science and do team building activities and explorations. It's been a lot of fun for her. Some of the things that they did included learning how to make a lava lamp, working with polycrystals, learning about optical illusions and much much more.

Today was the final Saturday and parents were invited to come down for a presentation and hands-on examination of everything that they had been working on. It was neat to see the pictures of all of their activities and then to walk around to the different stations and have the children explaining what the project was and how it worked. Such a cool thing and a wonderful example of something educational that is fun. She can't wait to do it again next year.
