During the week of Feb. 24, Miller Avenue School hosted a science fair for all students in grades two through five. Over 180 projects filled the gymnasium detailing experiments about acid reflux, beach erosion, electricity and more. The two top projects will be submitted to Brookhaven National Laboratory’s Elementary Science Fair for consideration.
One student, who conducted an experiment on which breakfast cereal wild birds would like best, developed her study around her desire to become an ornithologist. “I thought that the birds would like to eat cereal, especially since the snow has made finding food more difficult,” she said. “My hypothesis was incorrect, but I am definitely going to be trying my experiment again in the spring to see if I get different results.”
Family and friends were welcomed to attend evening viewing sessions.
