Bassett High hosts First Annual Science Fair
Follow-up Story: Bassett High School science students conducted explosive experiments and explored bubbling reactions at the school’s first annual science fair on Jan. 27. The students gave live presentations, ranging from erupting soda bottles when combined with Mentos to making ice cream using a gallon plastic bag with ice and salt, while giving explanations on the chemical compounds that make those reactions possible. As a grand finale, a student created a moving robot in under 15 minutes by using four corks, a compact disc, a piece of wire, a battery and four pieces of metal. Photos are available.
