Science fair winners chosen for district fair

Elyse Seinen, a kindergarten student at Maranatha Christian School, participated in her first school science fair last week.

Elyse Seinen, a kindergarten student at Maranatha Christian School, participated in her first school science fair last week.

Her display was called ‘Walking on Eggshells’ and teacher Mike Warkentin provided ‘feets-on’ proof that eggshells may be harder than you think, depending on their angle.

But alas, students took great delight in seeing that he broke every egg while trying to walk on the raw eggs in their cartons.

Such was the excitement at the school last week for the annual science fair held at the school with students from Cariboo Adventist Academy also participating.
