Favorite school science project: “For my seventh grade science fair project, I tested the relationship between yellow and white paint and how they conduct heat. After many years of overheating on the school bus, I wanted to prove that they should all be painted white on top! While my lab setup was much what you would expect from a middle school kid, I did get the results I wanted.”
