School district begins science fairs
by Arathi Satish
Where do butterflies come from? Do birds like birdseeds of a particular color? Which bread grows mold faster? Which kitchen paper towel is the strongest? Do girls learn math faster than boys? What causes a tsunami?
The answers to questions like this can be found at local science fairs. Children from Fremont schools have either recently participated in their school's science fair or are about to do so. Upon completion of the individual school fairs, winners will participate in the district-wide Science Fair to be held in May.
Successful entries range from intricate and complex experiments to testing a theory using inexpensive materials easily found at home. Plan to attend the district-wide science fair and visit exhibits where students will help to unravel secrets of the world around us.
