Alan presented his science experiment, “Baggie and Pencil Magic,” to his class today. He demonstrated sticking a pencil through a Ziploc bag full of water, while explaining how polymers formed a seal around the hole and prevented the water from spilling out. Alan — with Noah as his volunteer bag-holder — did great and earned a 15 out of 16 for his grade! Alan’s practice last night (pictured above) helped, but so did all the work he put in with Grandma Debbie over the past few weekends. 🙂
Alan will also be presenting his experiment at the District Science Showcase at Mayfield High School on March 14th!
