It only happens every few years, but it produces some of the most interesting projects: Prince of Peace Catholic School’s Einstein Expo.
The school’s earth, physical, and life science fair is open to students in grades three through eight and showcases their imagination, ingenuity, and experimental skills. Winning projects included titles such as: “Can Worms Smell,” “The Germ Buster,” “The Hairspray Face Shield,” “Sugar versus Stevia,” and “Self-Inflating Balloons” and many others.
The young scientists made an oral presentation of their projects to a panel of judges during the school day. Later that day, in the evening, the students returned to school with their parents to discover if their project had been awarded a ribbon. The students pictured were winners in the various categories and grade levels.
