This was the first year that my kids participated in the TCPS Science Fair. We spent months making plans, experimenting and making the displays. Gabby chose to do her project on the Effects of a Substabce on Blood Sugar Readings. Maddy did Do Name Brand Foods taste the same as Store Brand Foods and AJ's project was Do Different Types of Firewood PRoduce Different Amounts of Heat. Lack of experience on my part resulted in Maddy and Gabby not placing at all. I completely didn't realize they needed a lab notebook and so they did not have one. This was very sad for them as they would have placed highly otherwise. AJ on the other hand won his age group and got a $25 Target Card. That boy was BEAMING. It was so adorable to see him in his little lab coat explaining his experiment to everyone that passed by. He always had quite a crowd about him and his judge was super impressed by his kowledge.
