 Students shine at annual fair

 A huge crowd strolled through the doors at the Granville Central School’s 19th Annual PTA Science, Technology, and Art Fair to observe this and over 175 other science, technology, and art exhibits.  There were plant demonstrations, experiments with static electricity and simple circuits, strobe light demonstrations, popcorn taste tests, and bristle bots, (in case you didn’t know it’s a robot built out of the head of the toothbrush!)  New this year were orange and purple T-shirts that were designed by Mr. Gendron and Ms. Weber and donned by all participants that submitted individual projects. 

Participants ranged from preschool through high school and were present to demonstrate and explain details about their science experiments and art projects.  Participation has increased every year.  Organizers scrambled to borrow 15 additional tables from last year’s number and those tables were loaded with projects, too!  People come expecting an exciting evening filled with lots of wonder, and they weren’t disappointed.  Several high school physics students, along with their teacher, had hands on experiments for visitors to explore.

  A mechanical project “Going for Goldberg” was created by the high school technology club and entertained viewers.  High school art projects were also displayed, as well as, projects created by preschoolers.  Students from both Mary J. Tanner and Granville Elementary School were also well represented with their creative science and art projects.  In addition, teachers submitted group or class projects.  Individual projects earned students a T-shirt, certificate and a medallion. Students were then escorted to a “photo shoot” and will receive their photo at school.
