Over 40 presentations by local science professionals, parents whose professions involve science and teachers made up this year’s highly successful Science Fun Day at Quest Elementary School in Hilton on June 1. Intermediate students also presented to the younger students. Coordinated by Cathleen Lippincott, elementary teacher, the day is dedicated to learning science in a hands-on and interesting way. Students travel around the school building and outdoor classroom to learn about science in our everyday lives.

This year’s many demonstrations included: eco gardening, playing with digiscopes, making lava lamps, having fun with cartography, learning about rocks and minerals, exploring a Sky Dome, creating underwater fireworks, watching miniature planes fly around the gym, creating energy and much more.

The day was divided into six 35-minute sessions and each session had numerous presentations and a hands-on activity for the students.
