Ah the joys of middle school. The whole time Nishe’ has been in middle school I haven’t heard anything about the science fair. That is until this year. Now it is mandatory for the children to do a process. Now that I have two kids in middle school I have double the work. I totally don’t mind. It is just a little difficult. Well since we have plenty of time and Tyler’s teacher is wanting more updates I started with his project first. First thing we did was to search the internet for projects. We found his project at the website Sciencebuddies.org. Having two children that had a project to do and not wanting to break the bank we set a budget of no more than $30 for each project. I am working on letting go of the reins. So when we were searching for his project on the site I told him what our budget goal was and I let him search through the site. He chose the project “How Salty Does The Sea Have To Be To Make An Egg Float?”. The great thing about this site was it gave estimated amounts on how much each project cost. I think he made a great decision and we had so much fun doing this project. I took pictures and we made two videos. We made two because the first one refused to load.
My little man is a very interesting person he has to have everything set up. I decided to take pictures of the entire process and then we recorded him doing the project. Took me all week to get the video up because it refused to upload on youtube. In the end we wound up redoing the video which he and his sister got a kick out of. Totally love these two. Tyler enjoyed doing this project. I am so glad he enjoyed it and had fun with it. Here are the pictures:
The entire project cost us no more than $20. So we were $10 under our budget. Woohoo!
Here is the video (sorry about the length) :
