THE SCIENTIST

Last year, Cole and his partner Olivia were among the few science projects to move forward to the LA County Science Fair competition at our school. Their experiment, while fairly simple, was a terrific project that lent to very documentable data and hypothesis. They spent time working out their presentation board and wording and overall did a great job. We couldn’t have been prouder. Besides the honor of representing their school, Cole was among the first kids with a disability to participate in the completion.

It’s time again for the 7th graders to start working on their projects for this years school science fair, the winners of which again move forward to the LA County Science Fair. This year the kids all have to do independent projects. No partners or teams.

Cole and I spent part of today researching some ideas. He’s keen to do something cooking based, though we looked up some potential experiments that were sports or music related. I’m encouraging him to consider the whole process and how well it translates in the documentation. Last years experiment was so perfect for data collection and a definitive conclusion. It’s a good format to aim for with this year’s too.

Perfect mashed potatoes? Process of milk to yogurt? Juice balls? What is the best sound to wake up to? So many possibilities. I can’t wait to see what he chooses! This is a long term project so I look forward to working on it with him in the coming weekends. Happy mom! More to come throughout the process and project…
