What do slime, the solar system, an octopus’s garden, dinosaur footprints, and plaster pokeballs have in common? These were some of the many fun and interesting topics at Buffalo Ridge Elementary’s (BRE) science fair on Friday, April 14.

Seventy projects were entered into the science fair with 110 students participating from kindergarten through fifth grade. Judges made their way around to the projects, and each student or student group made a presentation. They told the judges about their idea, their process, their results, and answered any questions. Winners were announced on Monday, April 17.

Fifth grader and aspiring marine biologist Jenna P. took first place at the BRE science fair on April 14 for her project showing how and why an octopus changes colors.
