The Science Fair Surprise

Every year at Kennedy the Saturday Science Club hosts a science fair.  Unlike most, it’s not a competition, but more of an opportunity for the kids to show what they’ve learned through the year and share it with the other students.  Everyone was busy getting their displays together, and they all did a great job.

Zara and Christine decided to do theirs about chemistry and how you have to be very careful not to mix the wrong things together.  They even talked about how you have to be careful with household chemicals.  They did a couple of different experiments throughout the day.

Josh did a different kind of chemistry.  He showed how you could use basic household items to make your very own volcano!!  It was pretty cool when he got it to “erupt”–but I doubt it was much fun to clean up.

   

Cassandra decided to concentrate on biology.  She talked with students about a variety of subjects and showed them where their different internal organs are.  She also talked about DNA and how it contains all the information that makes us who we are.

Ryan and Shivan are both fans of astronomy so they decided to bring Ryan’s telescope and show the kids how it works.  Shivan worked with the kids while Ryan talked about the planets, stars and the various constellations.  It was all very interesting and they both knew a lot about the subject.

Everyone did a great job with their displays, but one in particular really caught everyone’s attention–Abby’s.  She decided to talk about forensic science.  And she did it up in style by dressing up as everyone’s favorite forensic scientist–Abby from NCIS!!!  She had a lot of fun with it and set up microscopes so that people could look at different things through them–a strand of hair, a footprint, a fingernail, and a finger print were just some of the things she had them look at.  Her display was the hit of the whole science fair!

   

I think everyone had a wonderful time and they learned something in the process!

Thank you to Maggie from If Dolls Could Dream for making Abby’s awesome lab jacket, it was perfect!  She made the skirt too.  And check out the boots, I found those on Etsy, they are by American Fashion World.   Abby Sciuto has always been one of my favorite characters, I was very sad to hear that Pauley Perrette was going to leave at the end of the most recent season.  It won’t be the same without her.
