A Beaker Full Of Fun At Esther Jackson’s Science Expo

The students, parents, staff and community members who attended Esther Jackson Elementary School’s first annual Science Expo had a beaker full of fun, and then some!

More than 65 students from kindergarten through fifth grade had projects on display. The crowd was invited to sample rock candy from a project that showed how crystals formed, watch a tornado in a bottle, find out how to make electricity with quarters and much more.

In addition, using liquid nitrogen, graham crackers and marshmallows, Michael Knotts, Senior Research Scientist from the Georgia Tech Research Institute, let students eat the snacks and watch fog come out of their noses! Science doesn’t get more fun than that.
