A group of young scientists have been hard at work in Columbus, and they are almost ready to unveil their findings.

On Monday, March 5, the Elementary Science Club will be holding a science fair from 4:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the Columbus Congregational Church to present to the community the projects the students have been working on for the last few weeks.

Some project topics include: glue slime stretch, Mentos-Coke fountains, candy color distribution, balloon drop speed, candy crystal sizes, and elephant toothpaste.

For the science projects, the students first picked out their topic, then had to determine the necessary materials and create a procedure.

Members of the community are welcome and encouraged to attend the science fair to view the experiments and ask questions.

The Elementary Science Club is a group of about 20 Columbus students who have been meeting after school on Mondays to learn about science while having some hands-on fun. They have learned about circuits, magnetism, constellations, and the water cycle, among other subjects.
