Crystal Growing this week in the Science Club with Mrs Jacoway

By Isabelle Gilet

Science club members are busy learning about the process they will use to create a project for the school and county science fair.  

This week we used crystal growing as a model for a possible project.  During the activity the kids identified all the possible variables, and decided which ones would be important to manipulate and how they could control all of the rest. After much discussion they chose to play with the type of solute  and the amount of solute that they used.
