- The Nativity Catholic School students in Rhinelander are showing off their science skills Thursday.
These students pose scientific questions and then provide the answer in colorful and even hands on ways.
Science Teacher Paula Schneider says it's something her students look forward to every year,
"The kids are excited about it and they look forward to it, they like to be able to show off what they can do."
Eighth grader Hunter Berwig says,"I tested the saying, 'Red sky in the morning, sailors take warning. Red sky at night, sailors delight.' What I did was, in the morning check the sunrise to see what it looked like. Then I also did that in the afternoon for the sunset."
Konnor Kennedy says his project is electric, "The switch makes the electricity go to here and there's a little motor in here that makes this thing spin and the blade is on it, you turn it on."
Laney Wyck experimented with oranges, "The one that I did peel, it sinks. The one that I didn't peel, it floats. Because the one without the peel has a different density level than the one with the peel."
Marisa McGuire completed a balancing act, "I made some nails balance on one nail that's in the center of a wood block."
Thaddeus Heck looked to the stars, "This is my project, it's a constellation of the seasons. You flip the panel to like summer and it shows you the constellations you see, all the stars."
Schneider says the projects vary from grade to grade and it all tops off with a year-long experiment for the eighth graders.
If you'd like to stop by the fair, it's open to the public until 6 o'clock Thursday night at the Nativity Catholic School in Rhinelander.
