Springfield Elementary School and Northwestern Elementary School both held science fairs in February.
On Feb. 22 in Springfield, 42 fourth-graders displayed their projects on everything from mold to baking to crystals and rocks and the planets.
Jungle Terry came with a hedgehog, reptiles and other animals to share with the crowd of more than 125 people.
“It’s cool when you look out in the crowd and see parents just as excited about it as students,” Springfield elementary Principal Rich Harvey said.
Northwestern High School students and members of the Albion Future Farmers of America (FFA) came to visit with FFA pets Jasper, a bunny, and Forest, a 1 ½-week old calf.
Representatives from Drake’s Well in Titusville - the world’s first commercially-functioning oil well - were there to discuss the process of drilling.
AmeriCorps member Zara Ostrander also had a cool phosphorescent rocks on display for all to see.
In Albion, nearly 100 students from all grades participated in the science fair at Northwestern elementary on Feb. 18 and 19.
Northwestern High School freshmen Dustin Andrews ad Jonah Hawley took photos at the event for the “Talking Science” webpage on nwsd.org they manage as a part of Mrs. MacFarlane’s ninth-grade physical science class.
Andrews and Hawley are in charge of making updates to the site of all things science -related districtwide throughout. Check out the page: https://sites.google.com/site/talkingsciencevol2/
