Walking through the cafeteria at Mt. Loafer Elementary School on Friday, February 10th, a visitor might not have felt smarter than a fifth-grader.
The room was filled with experiments for the annual science fair, ranging from which white flower changes color the fastest (the Aster), which fruit fruit flies fly for (bananas are foremost on their flight plan) , and if playing video games affects pain tolerance (a person can tolerate more pain when the mind is involved in a game.)
Congratulations to all the fifth graders! The projects looked fantastic. The following students will be moving on to the district science fair at Landmark High School on Wednesday, February 22nd: Brandi McGhie, Kenzie Wilkinson, Sophie Neria, Paige Paxton, Alyssa Moore, Paige Youd, Jade Marziale, Nathaniel Meads, Hunter Riding, Evan Shepherd, Brad Cloward, Shane Jackson, and Thane Eliot. Good luck!
