MERRILL - Young scientists got their chance to shine in Merrill Tuesday evening. More than fifty K-5 students made projects for the Merrill Science Fair. This was the first district-wide fair to be held in years.
"It's really just an exploration and a chance to dip your hands into science," said MAPS Board of Education Member Eric Geiss. "There have been themes in the past like innovation and what you can do for inventions. Since we're just getting it rolling again, we're just letting them get their fingers wet with science."
Projects included volcanoes, light bulbs, and even a hovercraft. The lack of a fair-theme allowed students to explore all aspects of science, but some of the students also learned the value of sharing ideas.
