Tonight our 7th grader debuts his science fair project in our school gymnasium.
Rather than me tell you about the details, I am going to record him telling about his project and post the video later tonight.
Before he debuts his science project, he and his team have an early evening game 26 miles one way from our school. We will be booking it back in time for him to get to the science fair to talk about the breaking points of wood.
There have been long hours Hunter has put into his testing.
He tested 12 different species of wood.
He used 105 lbs. of nails.
He wrote a report, prepared Excel spreadsheets, a graph and a display board to highlight his project.
When I asked our son what was his favorite thing about his science project he quickly said “learning about the science in our family business.”
Small town living advantages shine through on a day like today when we can see our boy connect his school science fair project to our family lumberyard business. That would have never happened on the corporate wheel living in suburbia. We are blessed.
I personally never did a science fair project. I would have been a lot smarter I think if I had.
Did you ever participate in a science fair?
