Wet sand, rock candy and ice cream . . . some of the ingredients for our science projects

Many people brought in their science projects to the science fair at Purvis Primary in the Jessie Purvis Assembly Hall on February 28.

Children were asked questions, and they replied and showed how their project was made and what the projects was made of. Emily Cabral did her science project on art mystery. It was beautiful that she made a heart with water paint. In her scrapbook, she had beautiful colours. Christopher Arruda made ice cream. Alera did her science project on wet sand. Kaela Riley did her science project on rock candy. She had blue liquid.

Mrs Lucas, the teacher in charge, said: “She is not overwhelmed because every member of staff helps to prepare for the science fair. It takes four months to set up for the fair.” When Mrs Lucas was a child, she did not have a science fair.

Students at Purvis love science fairs. Mrs Lucas gave the students a list of what they can do. People got first place, other people got second place and third place.

On Friday everyone took home their science project. Some people might keep their science projects or might not keep it.

Everyone loved the science fair

By Kaela Riley P4, Purvis Primary

Most children at Purvis Primary participated in the Science Fair from February 28 to March 2.

All the students bought their project boards. They had to prepare for what they had to discover. They had to buy ingredients for their experiments and go on the internet to get information.

All of the projects were delightful. There were candy projects, earth projects, spiders, volcano projects, and ocean projects.

Mr. Patrick Talbot, a curator at the Bermuda Aquarium and Zoo said: “I was selected as a judge because of my science background.” He has been a judge for six years. He said:” It is not hard to judge. I judge at other schools like Whitney, MSA., and Somersfield Academy.”

This was the best science fair ever at Purvis. Everyone loved it and had a great time doing it.

Winners all: Studentas who won a first place ribbon for their projects during the Purvis Primary School 11th Annual Science Fair.
