Caution! You are about to enter into another Grammy moment.
Brian’s took 5th place out of the top 6th winners in his school’s science fair. His teacher emailed me to inform me that on Monday, at school, they are going to announce the winners. From what I understand, the top six will move on to the system-level competition. I am not sure what that means. I will find out more Monday.
We wracked our brains to think of a project that was unique and wasn’t one that has been done many times before.
We came up with ‘Yeast’-The Sugar Eating Fungus. Actually, baker’s yeast-Saccharomyces Cervisiae (sack-a-roe-MY-seas sair-a-VIS-e-eye).
I love saying Saccharomyces Cervisiae now that I know how it is pronounced.
We wanted to see if yeast can function as a decomposer. We used a banana in this experiment.
Along with the poster, he had a typed report and kept a daily log/journal of the experiment.
Yes! Yeast does act as a decomposer.
Also, out of the four 4th grades classes, Brian and another of his classmates won the spelling bee in their class.
Now, if I could just get him to make his bed…
