More on the Mind Fair

The ingenuity of these kids is mind-boggling. There were so many great projects. The coolest one, I thought, was one by a second-grader. Did you know that if you fold your paper properly, just one straight cut across the folds will yield any shape you want? A mathematical prodigy proved this, and this kid found out about it and turned it into a Mind Fair project. Another cool one: a 3rd grader did a photo essay documenting how to set up a fish tank, including testing the water, choosing compatible fish, etc. Other topics: African American Astronauts; All About Cheese (including samples); Dolphins; Volcanoes; Anatomy of a Ferret; What is the Fastest Bird/Mammal/Fish; and of course . . . Ladybugs! As promised, here's the photo:

  • My profoundest apologies for the way the photo hangs over the edge of the "page." It offends me extremely, but I don't know how to fix it other than by choosing size "small," which would make it illegible.
