Science Projects

While conducting science experiments this year we learned three things:

  1. Making a potato canon is fairly simple.  It is a lot of fun to play with.  The neighbors get really mad when you use it in the neighborhood (especially if they are Vietnam Vets and one of the projectiles--a plastic grocery bag--ends up in their swimming pool.  Oops).
  2. Tulips die very quickly when placed in vinegar.
  3. Crickets are not repelled by ultra-sonic bug repellers. If anything it makes them more active.
We were also reminded that no matter how far in advance we plan a science project we still end up staying up way too late the night before it's due,
