On Friday, my school held its first ever science fair! Now, I was never the A+ student in science but I have to say, April made learning science so much fun. It was offered as a winter intensive class (Sprout & Sapling level). I helped out with the Sapling-level class along with Grace. We did various science experiments everyday and wrote reports about it. At the end of the class, each student had to pick one science experiment to do on their own. They made a poster board & presented it to parents and teachers at the science fair Friday night. All of the kids worked really hard and I was glad to be part of it. This was the one class I looked forward to every Monday, Wednesday, & Friday. I made food for the science fair since I thought, why not go all out? I whipped up some rice krispie treats, chocolate-covered strawberries, worm in dirt cups, and sopporo croissants (store-bought). Pair that with some orange juice, 식혜, & some proud parents & you have a winning combination.
We also had winners of the science fair. Alex got first place. That was such a given. He had a really great presentation & his project literally took like 2 hours to complete -_- 2nd place was Aishling. She was in the Sprout2 science class so I don’t really know her… but she did mistake me for a student… & I just found out that she’ll be in my T-TH Sprout2 class after break. Lovely. 3rd place was Justin. It was the best moment ever. Esther mistakenly called out his name 2nd… making him believe that he was 2nd place. He did this fist pump with a “YEA!” when he heard his name. Then when Esther apologized & he did the most adorable step back ever. Then he was called up again for 3rd place & was like “YEA!” & did another fist pump. It was such a glorious moment. His adorable little sister was so happy for him.
I had a great time with this class overall & I made so many new little friends! Well, most of them are taller than me, but that’s okay! Jay appreciates my rice krispies so I’ll be making him more once we get back from break. I want to teach/assist with Science Project again in the summer. Perhaps assist with the Sprout-level class instead. Anyways, here are some pictures & videos of the event:
…. He’s my student.
