Johnson Junior High Science Fair

[slideshow_deploy id=’69564′]

On the 26th of February, Johnson Junior High in Arbuckle held their annual Science Fair in which the science projects of the 7th and 8th-grade students was displayed.

The projects covered a broad range of topics, and each showed the hard work that the students put into completing the assignment that was given to them before he or she went on Christmas break.

There were 215 projects in all, and each was recognized for its completion while 104 combined 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place ribbons and one best in show were given out.

Best in show was awarded to 8th-grade student Garrett Grimmer for his science project entitled “Root Beer Explosion”.

Grimmer’s project answered the question of whether the diet or regular root beer exploded the most when Mentos mints were added.

While the student created projects were the main attraction, the night also offered those in attendance the chance to experience Mad Science, which is an organization that brings science to children in a fun and interactive way.

The Mad Science displays allowed the students and their families to see science come to life and enabled them to take part in the scientific displays. Those in attendance were shown how electrical current worked through the use of a vandergraph and were showed how to make slime with the use of polyvinyl alcohol and sodium borate.

The Science Fair at Johnson Junior High served as a presentation for the student created science projects as well as an opportunity for the students and their families to experience science in a unique way.
