Everyone presented their big end of year science projects today. Two were pretty nervous about this whole thing and one was…not so nervous. I will let you guess. 😉 All did a wonderful job.

Sophie’s presentation about water. She demonstrated an invention called the Life Straw that filters water to make not so clean water into drinkable water, for those in need.

Levi’s presentation about global warming. He built a solar powered robot to show that we can use alternative energy sources to slow the effects of global warming.

Bella’s presentation about diamonds. She grew her own crystals, although they are not real diamonds because, as she will point out, she did not have billions of years to do so.

These were for an earth science class that they take with a home school support group that the school district offers. They took writing, earth science and art this semester. We did not mean for the presentations to take this turn, but all of them ended up being rather activist/save the earth type presentations, when maybe they should have focused more on something like facts about caves or rivers or whatever. They chose their topics themselves though, and they went in the directions they did by choice, so there is that. Anyhow, I think we all breathed a sigh of relief when we wrapped this project up today!
