February 2019: The Junior Board Hosts Its First Science Fair at Morristown Neighborhood House

"Starting at five in the evening, the gymnasium of the Neighborhood House was filled with around seventy-five kids from the 3rd to the 6th grades looking to enjoy an evening of fun, food and science; and they were not disappointed!

There were six projects created by the Junior Board, which were available for viewing along the perimeter of the gym: Balloon Cars, Slime, Diet Coke and Mentos, Lava Lamps, Elephant Toothpaste, and the Licorice Experiment.

One of the biggest hits was the elephant toothpaste, in which a special combination of dry yeast and water was added to a mix of hydrogen peroxide and dish liquid, to create colorful geysers of bubbly foam.

Another experiment was a tribute to the latest modern trend: slime. At this station, groups of students played around with gooey slime and learned about how it was made. Additionally, the classic coke and Mentos experiment was a real crowd pleaser, and students watched the experiment in awe as they learned about the chemical process behind the sugary explosion.

Overall, it was a huge success, and an experience that we hoped made the student community at Cornerstone inspired to engage with science."
