Classical Conversations, a local homeschool community, held their annual Science Fair Monday, Feb. 13.
The science fair, led by director Esther Ramsey, had six students ranging from 12-and-13 years old who spent ten weeks walking through the scientific method with each of their experiments. After keeping a lab journal and writing a research plan, they then completed a research paper with their results and conclusions included.
Each student gave an oral presentation of their science fair project to five judges, family, friends, peers and their homeschool community.
Tying for second place, with a $75 reward each, were Sally Clevenger, who tested the different metals for conductivity using a Jacob's ladder and Molly Dix, with her findings on the difference of using baking powder and baking soda in her muffins.
First place and a $100 prize was awarded to Kellen Lewis, who tested different brands of carbon monoxide detectors to find out which one was first to alert.
Classical Conversations serves homeschooling families from around the area, where they meet weekly for socratic dialogue, engaging conversations and meaningful relationships. From the age of four, children learn and internalize the scientific method with a variety of interesting science experiments done in class.
