(The South Middle School Science Fair takes place each spring and every student in grades six to eight has to come up with a project for it.)
I was walking one day with my friend Calbe; he was eating skittles. He threw one at me, even though I hadn't done anything. We both laughed. He had the bag of skittles in his hand. "I bet if you stick your hand in that bag, you'll get a red one," I said.
"Well, let's see." He stuck his hand in the bag of Skittles and sure enough, he got a purple one.
"You know what, Caleb. I'm going to do a science project and see which color of skittle is more dominant." We both started laughing.
"Sounds good, Alex, sounds good," said Caleb.
It's not easy to find a good science project to do. You just have to look around and find something you're interested in. But to make a science fair project good, you have to put your best effort into it, hard work, and do your best. That's how I got first place a couple of years.
(Note: Winners in the SMS Science Fair will be printed on this website sometime in the next few days.)
