The Northwest Science & Innovation Society held their Annual Science Fair on Saturday, February 20th at the Mount Elizabeth Secondary School Cafeteria. There were not as many projects as last year but what they lacked in quantity, they made up for in quality.
“We’re having a science fair, it’s open to kids K-12 that are in schools or home schooled,“ said Gienny Kenmuir organizer.
There were 18 exhibitors and a wide range of projects including fossils, static electricity, batteries, global warming and storms. One kid even created his own potato gun. There were not as many exhibits as had been expected but a lot of the students were students who had entered last years science fair.
The best in fair project of the science fair was a group project entered by Etienne and Nicolas Gangnon-Picard who tested batteries to see how long they lasted and to determine which was the better brand of battery.
In addition to the science projects, Northwest Science & Innovation Society held their Annual Science Fair had several activities for the students to do including teaching them about fingerprints, making harmonicas and a density experiement.
