Science Fair

Instead of our family’s usual paper-towel experiment, Caroline came up with an experiment to see how well washable markers actually wash out. She had a good time shopping for supplies with Nancy and preparing the experiment.

It was a good experiment but it seems that all the markers wash out pretty well so it was hard to determine any difference between them. In the end it was a cheap and easy science fair project. After messing with apples and plants and paper towels, it gets more difficult each year to come up with an experiment. I’ll be glad when our youngest is past 6th grade and thus science fair is behind us.
