The Library’s first Science Fair on Feb. 28 was a great success! Twenty two young scientists from Grades 3 to 8 exhibited their research and it was all pretty impressive. We saw the effects of propeller angle on airplane thrust, a balloon rocket experiment, learned how solar cells produce power and much more!
