Jace's First Science Fair

Jace had his first Science Fair at his school last night.  He's only in kindergarten and we are new to his school this year so we weren't quite sure what to expect, but I think we did pretty good!  Earl took the night off to help out and Ezie and Mallory came along too. 
It was a really fun family night!

One of Jace's experiments was Reactive Art.
We filled a large cookie sheet with baking soda and then had cups of
different colored vinegar so the kids could put spoonfuls of the vinegar
on the baking soda and watch it fizz.

Here's Jace explaining his experiment to someone as Ezie and Mallory are watching him.

It doesn't show up to well in my picture, but it was pretty cool with all the colors as the kids put spoonfuls of vinegar onto the baking soda.

We also did the rubber egg experiment and only had 2 kids squeeze the egg
to hard and break them open.

Jace also did the homemade Quacker Caller.  On this one you just get a straw and cut a triangle on the top of the straw, flatten it out really good and blow hard. 
A duck sound should come out of the straw.

Thanks Jace for a fun night!
