Young scientists shine at CMS science fair

Sixty students created 37 exhibits that were entered for judging in the Camillus Middle School Science Fair on Feb. 26.

"The quality of the experiments was impressive, with a great variety of topics covered," said Science teacher Jackie Mills, who coordinated the fair.

Project themes were diverse and included, "Vericomposting," "Spin-Ertia," "Chocolate Bloom," "Plants to Dye For," and "How Coffee Affects the Body."

Parents were invited in the evening to view the projects and attend the awards ceremony.
