5th Grade Science Fair

Marquel had the opportunity (alright had to) participate in the Science Fair this year. She choose Orbeez. Orbeez have been used since the early 1930's. They are still used today in plants, table decorations, and kids grow them, play with them, and in our case they are sitting in the kitchen. It was a lot of fun to watch Marquel try different experiments with the orbeez. Crazy to think they are the size of a pin when you start to grow them and then end up the size of your pinky.
Marquel didn't place in the fair, but when I asked her if she was sad that she didn't she said "Heck NO!" I don't want to do this again. He project was very popular with the other kids, and even had parents asking where they could buy them.
Way To Go Marquel! You did great! :)
