Science Fair


Mix soap and water
Blow bubble, measure thickness
Eighth grade science fair

Last night was the eighth grade science fair. And the winner is: Deflate Gate. A clever student who measured air pressure in footballs to determine the ideal amount for passing. Actually there was more than one project measuring air in footballs. One student filled a football with helium to see the difference between throwing a ball with it vs. air.

Gretchen’s project was original no one else measured bubble thickness. She did not have the equation she used to get her results on the poster. Probably would have helped with understanding the numbers. It wasn’t all that well attended last night anyway. 😦

Today’s #haikuchallenge word is mix. It worked well for mom to write a poem on her project.
