Redeemer Science Fair!

Last night another Mom and I took our CCS participants to Ancaster for the Redeemer College University Science Fair. Tim, Cody and Byron were all very excited to go, especially since they were all having a sleepover at Cody's grandparents!
We arrived shortly after 5, found our tables, set up the boys' boards, and had a look at the other projects. Some really neat stuff there, including at least 2 hovercrafts and one trebuchet. Our boys entries fit right in, Tim's on Memory Games, Cody's comparing types of insulation, and Byron built his own lava lamp.

We hit Wendy's for supper, and then headed back for the Antics With Atoms Opening Presentation. Barbara, Bethany and Jeremy met us there too. What a great program! Thoroughly enjoyed by adults and kids alike. Tim and Bethany both got asked to come up and help with a demonstration. Bethany was hoping to get Tim wet, but the window screen held all the water in the jar! We also saw exploding cornstarch, colour changing liquid, smoke rings and a sunset!

Today the boys had Interviews (part of the judging process), then Science Olympics and other activities. Even if they don't get an award, a worthwhile and enjoyable day!
And now, off to see the Grade 1/2 Easter Assembly, and then preparing for extra guests this weekend. The Easter Roots Conference is being hosted by London YPS, so we have 4 extra girls sleeping here! Looks to be a busy but fun weekend.
Have a Blessed Easter everyone!

Sorry we didn't make it on Thursday to see Tim. Callum has been fighting a(nother) cold, and he napped long. We were all planning on going, but then none of us did.

Hope it went well.

P.S. my word verification is "pagan"....

He was having way too much fun anyway. It's not like they were standing by their project waiting for people. He barely had time to talk to Piet and Grandma. There was a Planet Earth film playing in the auditorium...
