Rockets and Hatchlings
Marlon and La had been preparing for the Hawaii State Science Olympiad for several weeks, and today was the culmination of their work. Marlon placed FIRST in the rocket competition!!!! He also placed in Experimental Design and Fossils - but my sense is both La and Marlon got the greatest sense of accomplishment from the rocket launch!!! After a long day at the HSSO, we came home to a betta hatch out party. The betta pair we bought a few weeks back went through a mating cycle (yes my kids have had the 'talk' - so this is more science and less 'ewww') and the fry are swimming about. We'll see if the bio load in the tank is enough to feed the fry once their egg sacks have been used up. Great day!
