Kapowsin Science Fair, March 9, 2017 by Keith Alan Morgan

Another STEM Fair presentation at Kapowsin Elementary.

Unfortunately the Kapowsin science fair was the same night as our club meeting, so we couldn’t attend both, so if you were
wondering where the Morgans were at the March meeting, we were trying to educate young minds about geology.

We got lost trying to find the school, so we were the last people to arrive and set-up, but even so we had kids come over and
ask questions about the rocks being set out. It wasn’t just kids talking to us, we also had parents and some grandparents asking
questions. One grandmother, after seeing the interest her granddaughter had in the rocks told her daughter, “Now I know who to leave
my rocks to.”

Even as we were taking down the display, we had people asking questions about rocks and minerals. It was a very nice
evening.
