Mayfield Junior School 7th Graders: Thinking Like Scientists

Published : Friday, March 28, 2014 | 9:28 PM

The Mayfield Junior School 7th graders presented their science projects to fellow students and alumni judges at the MJS Science Fair. For the last three months they have researched topics and defined objectives such as “How thirsty is the sun?” “Can smells help with memory loss?” or “Testing the phenomenon of perception called pareidolia.” Then developed hypotheses and conducted experiments with some very interesting results.

Following the fair each student received a certificate of accomplishment for their hard work and individual awards were handed out for excellence in presentation (Aesthetic Award), creative use of technology (Innovation Award) and most uplifting (Inspiration Award). A few students will be entering their projects in the L.A. County Science Fair this month.
