Science Fair Makes Learning FunSubmitted: 04/04/2013
Story By Lex Gray


MINOCQUA - Science can be all periodic tables and textbooks - or it can be fun.

MHLT Elementary students showed just how much fun it can be tonight at their Science Fair.

You don't expect to hear laughter in a science lab, but Professor Gizmo got students and parents laughing and engaged with his wacky experiments.

Principal Rob Way says that kind of learning is important.

"Science brings out the natural curiosity in kids. It's so important for kids to have that joyful, rich learning environment," Way said. "Kids are able to learn about all their subject areas - math and reading and social studies - through science. It's a great avenue to bring together learning."

Students agree. They showed off projects to friends and family.

Fifth grader Zoe Botes is working on an experiment with chicken and ostrich eggs.

"I like doing the big projects like this and it's fun having to show people and you parents the projects that you've worked hard on," she said. "Especially showing them the ostrich eggs and the chicken eggs and that they're going to hatch and everything. So it's very fun."

MHLT has hosted an annual Science Fair since 1997.
