The youngest scientists in Cottonwood have a lot on their minds.
Which deflates faster, a balloon filled with helium or a balloon filled with air?
“It’s all science,” Kelli Rhoda, Cottonwood Elementary School teacher and Cottonwood-Oak Creek School District science committee member, said. “Everything is science.”
Rhoda made the observation as she and other members of the committee set up dozens of tables with three-panel cardboard displays created by fifth- and seventh-grade students who advanced from science fair competitions at each of their schools to the district level.
Judging was under way Tuesday, Feb. 23. Students competed for first, second, third and fourth place at each grade level in each category of science, Rhoda said.
