Science Fair News

Sabina had to work on a science for school. It was her first time and she had a rocky start. The hardest part for her was deciding on her project and figuring out how to put the idea together since she didn't see the big picture. For me, the hardest part was trying to not do the project for her. I did help her with the rubric and showing her how to check the rubric to make sure she included everything that was required. It was a stretch for both of us. She had to learn about the process as well as stick with the project for extended periods of time. My patience was tested many times over. When the day to turn the project in arrived I don't know who was more excited, me or Sabina!

The science fair came two days later. It was very nice to see all of the projects in one room. There were some really great projects. To make the night even better, the StarLab was onsite and available for the kids to go in and learn.

This week Sabi found out that she won first place. This qualifies her to go on to the County Science Fair. Pretty Cool!
