Orion had a good time at his science fair a few days ago. He did his demonstration on magnets. He didn't do one last year, but two years ago, in the K/1st grade division he won first place.
This year he won 3rd place, amidst the 2nd/3rd grader category...which had double the competition as far as the number of entries went. They could do either a demonstration or experiment. The winning student did something on DNA ... you know, extracting DNA from bananas and such. Ah well. :)
BUT...he was pretty happy with his 3rd place finish!
