The Hillsborough Elementary School Science Fair that took place a couple of weeks ago was a real treat - and an eye opener. I don't remember ever participating in one of these when I was in school, and hadn't been to one in years. The students' chosen topics were fascinating, and it was great to see such a tremendous turnout - approximately 135 students creating displays for the fair.
Of course the best part was watching my own first-grader explain his project to one of the dozen or so judges who examined each student's work. A real thrill!
