Meet the Scientists!

Katie and Eric both participated in the Greater KC Science & Engineering Fair for the first time this year. They had fun performing their experiments and organizing their data(maybe a little less fun writing up their findings/results/conclusions).  We told them just getting everything finished and turned in on time was an accomplishment and we all went to dinner to celebrate.  Then, surprise!  Katie received a silver ribbon for her project, and almost all positive judging comments, great job, Katie!  Eric's work received a gold ribbon and a "special award."  Congratulations, Eric!  Tune in Sunday evening when I'll post more about that.  He has to go to the awards ceremony tomorrow to receive(and find out about) the award.  We are so proud of both of them!
