Competed and often won. There isn't enough time or money spent on science-related education anymore.

Remember the one Obama told us about lobbyists not being allowed in the White House. Yeh, that was a good one too. We even believed it & elected him.

In 2008 he said there will be no blue states, no red states only the United States, that he would be the great uniter. He has to be the most divisive President in modern history.

We all remember the soaring rhetoric of Barack Obama in 2008..."I will have the most transparent administration in history." Look now at stopping the F&F investigation & the e mails revealed about back room deals to get Obamacare passed.

4th but not the others- you would at least learn what to do to win 6th grades? ;D

If I did now, it would be sophisticated and uplifting. I would be a happy genius that intrigues the world of modern day science. It would be...BRILLIANT.. ;)

Yes I have done a few in my life time.

Never competed, but judged at both of my daughters fairs. No, I did not judge my daughters entries.

I'm the dumbass in the relationship, the hubs is the scientist. He made/makes up for my slack lol.

The teachers loved the home made engineering projects.

A lot of my childhood science experiments were for private use. We made great guns, shocking machines, explosives and stink bombs etc. They were very powerful and would get us in serious trouble if we did that today. We never damaged property, just old fashioned mischief. Always solving problems

Rube Goldberg. Team came in first place.

I know in at least one year of elementary school, but it might have been two, it was mandatory. I remember 4th grade distinctly because it was immediately obvious that most of my peers had parental help with their project boards and I had none. I had big dreams for mine & it came out pitiful.

@iBryan lol no. He meant, "i entered my chicken (cock) once".

Did as a kid, but I was horrible. But my son won 2nd place last year on an ant study. He is very into science. I look forward to seeing what he grows up to be!

BryanK OK

@BigUgly You entered your cock ?? O.o

Yes I did a science fair last year and I'm going to again next year (only cause I'm forced to) ( I'm in seventh grade) :)

Only in 5th grade but it wasn't competitive


06/15/12 9:38 pm

We were able to do this with the help of my partner's father who is an aerospace engineer and former employee of NASA.


06/15/12 9:37 pm

Five times. My fourth and fifth time I had a partner. Both of these projects was to launch a rocket above the thermosphere. Our first attempt only reached the mesosphere. Our second try was a success. The second rocket was 15,2 meters high!


06/15/12 8:41 pm

Once, in third grade. I made my mom do most of it though.

I placed in the Tidewater Science Fair in middle school and received a scholarship for college.

I prefer ballistics science. And my brother and I cooked up our own makeshift napalm. Does that count?

Wow, they are required every year in the district I teach in. I am shocked so many people have not had the opportunity.

yeah, many times. never won though. twice i faked the results to give the trend I thought was correct. now that i have a science-related degree, i realize how misguided my experiments were as a kid.

3rd grade & 6th grade. I never win:)

I conducted a very scientific experiment to see what chocolate bar would melt the fastest by sticking them in the oven. I got a participation ribbon.

wedaslaves, lol. I was talking about a pheasant I shot and stuffed. I strapped a rocket to its ass and sent it flying as an example of reanimation.

Ugly, what do chickens have to do with school science projects? They don't want anything that can carry disease these days.


06/15/12 1:24 pm

Yep. My school forced everyone to in 5th grade

I entered my cock once. I won grand champion 4th through 6th grade.

I said no because I think I did back in the 5th grade or so, but have no specific memory. I'm sure if I did my project didn't fly, spew fire, or explode, so I wouldn't have deserved to win anyway.
