Science Fair

The Science Fair was held today for the 7th and 8th graders at Kayli’s school. Kayli’s experiment was to see if the pot type effected plant growth. She took measurements every day for 24 days and determined that the clay pots were the best for plant growth. She received the highest award given in her category, an honorable mention. It is unfortunate that the judges were allowed not to give out 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in her category. None of the other judges did that, even giving out a 1st and 2nd place in a category with just two entries. It really was not fair to the kids in Kayli’s category, especially when you see kids that spent only a day during their experiments winning 1st, 2nd and 3rd places. Because of this, Kayli went away from the Science Fair with the attitude that she should not have spent so much time working on her project. Any Science Fair judges reading this might want to keep this in mind before deciding not to award any 1st, 2nd and 3rd places when they are judging.
