WMS science shines at fair (02/17/2013)

     Sixth grader Dylan Celius, 11, explains to a judge how his experiment tested the bounciness, stretchiness, and malleability of different sticky concoctions.

Nearly 100 Winona Middle School students set up their science experiments Tuesday for the annual science fair. Fifth and sixth graders pondered why voices are different, which nail polish lasts the longest, and why volcanoes erupt, among other things.

For the last two months, WMS teacher Sarah Culver said students have been hard at work researching a myriad of science topics.

“A lot of these experiments are useful and based around everyday household problems, like finding out which diaper is most durable,” Culver said. “This science fair is all voluntary. These kids didn’t have to come to the fair, but they are so proud of their work that they are spending three hours of their time after school to present them.”

Sixth grader Dylan Celius, 11, made his own Gak, Silly Putty, and another sticky concoction he called Mars Milk. Celius attempted to discover which substance would be the most stretchy, bouncy, and malleable.

“I would try my experiment out each morning before school because I had extra time,” Celius said. “I wanted to present my experiment today because science is one of my favorite subjects.”

St. Mary’s University education students and WMS teachers helped with judging.
