Time for Science

 I signed myself up as a Science Fair judge at Blake's school.  I may not be a studied scientist, but I always loved the science fair in elementary school and they desperately needed judges.  I swooped in and loved being a judge.  I loved talking to the kids about their experiments and was proud of their hard work.  It was hilarious to hear some kids say, "My mom and dad picked the experiment.  We then watched a video online of the experiment and then copied it."  It was sweet to then see kids super passionate about magnets and hear their story of having to rebuild pieces of their project over and over again.  A volunteer judge, who has been a judge at Blake's school for over ten years, said, "I am so sick of seeing Mentos in soda."  Since I was new, I spent a lot of time talking to a Mentos/soda kid asking him what it was like trying to get away from an exploding soda bottle.  A very entertaining two hours!
