Students exhibit at Zumbro Ed District Science Fair
Taron Winter, from Triton, stands beside the science project he made for the Zumbro Education District Science Fair. He experimented with seven balls, all the same size, to see which one went the farthest through the air after being catapulted. One ball he already had at home, but he got several of the balls off e-bay. The one that went the farthest was a colorful sponge ball. Photo by Ruth Hanson

Students from six schools in the Zumbro Education District traveled to Pine island on Friday, March 14, to exhibit their projects.

They had developed questions, worked on making exhibits on poster board and hands-on ideas with help from their parents, and then explained their projects to two or three judges that afternoon in Pine Island.

No two were alike among the 210 projects. Their projects were acknowledged with ribbons.

"When one group was getting judged, the other two groups were watching presentations done by the staff of the Reptile Amphibian Discovery in Owatonna," Jon Wright, a Triton fourth grade teacher, said. "The kids had a great time looking at snakes, lizards and reptiles and hearing their stories."

Many of them spent time on the bus going home planning what they would make the next year.
