Scientifically Speaking


Today was Zoe's science fair at school. As part of the IB program the kids are required to submit a project. I think the hardest part of this process is thinking of a topic! I went up to her school around 9:30 this morning and I couldn't believe how many projects were set up in the auditorium! The letter home stated that there would be close to 300 projects set up, but I just didn't realize how many that was until I walked in! Zoe's project was titled "Does wearing nail polish affect nail growth"? Here are a couple photo's of the auditorium, but I couldn't get a photo of the whole thing because there were students browsing through the aisles.



I know these aren't the best pics, but from one end to the other all you could see were projects! Among them I saw some interesting ones, and some silly, but most were really well done. One was about a "Gum Chewing Guitarist" who tested the theory of wether or not chewing gum helped him to keep time with his music. Another was testing wether or not the temperature of a tennis ball had anything to do with how it bounced!

Wow how fun! I love science projects, but always had difficulty coming up with something different.

Water Balloons

When my kids told me they didn't know what to do with themselves yesterday I suggested they go outside and play with the water balloons....
