Whether it was testing to see if dog's saliva actually gets rid of bacteria or finding out which type of soil earthworms prefer, Barnum students in grades 4-6 followed the scientific method while creating their annual science fair experiment. The eighth annual event was held March 16 and featured over 175 exhibits on display in the Barnum School cafeteria.
"You could feel the excitement and energy as individuals proudly demonstrated what they discovered about their chosen science topic," said Paula Baier, fourth-grade teacher at Barnum.
"We would like to give special thanks to the parents for guiding their child with their experiment and attending our Science Fair," she continued. "Your support plays a large part in your child's success!
