SCIENCE FAIR

I am sorry I have been giving you such boring posts lately, but today I have a good one for you.  We had a 4 hour science fair at the library.  It began with some students from Temple University that came to show the kids things about electricity.  There were 60 kids that showed up.  They had a lot of fun.

THERE WAS A HAND-CRANKED  GENERATOR THAT MADE THIS CAR GO AROUND THE TRACK.  THE KIDS TOOK TURNS CRANKING IT AND HAD A LOT OF FUN. 

THE KIDS HAD A "SHOCKING" TIME.  THIS LITTLE BOY WAS PUTTING THE SMALL BALL NEAR THE LARGE ONE AND MAKING A SPARK FLY.
 The second session was on magnets.  I was on the front desk and so did not get to take pictures of it.  But it was cool.  The kids made little toys that moved because of the magnet underneath it.

The third and final show was about Egypt and mummies.  A curator from the University of Pennsylvania Museum gave the lecture.  It was very interesting.  I spent my dinner hour listening to it.







It was a great day.  I like days where I can actually stretch my mind and learn something.  

Tomorrow is the last day of my 6 day work week.  I will be very happy to see Saturday come.
