2009 Science Fairs

by Dick Morgan

The South Sound Science Fair for the schools in the south sound, classes from kindergarten through 12th grade, was held at the Pacific Lutheran University. I had been invited as a presenter on geology and to display my rocks, minerals and fossils. It was a great time as there were around 650 students with projects to be judged. With many of the students, and their siblings, and their parents, asking questions, it was a very busy time. Pat and I had a very enjoyable time answering questions and explaining facts about the display.

Sumner School Science Fair, February 7, 2009 by Dick Morgan
I was asked to give a presentation of geology facts and a display of rocks, minerals & fossils at the Sumner School Science Fair. It started at 9:00 in the morning and ended at 3:00 PM. Usually there are many more children then adults, but this time it appeared that more adults were asking questions about how the items were formed. Also there were more questions than usual about the lapidary hobby.
In March there will be the area schools
