On March 18, students at McNamara Elementary School filled the hallways and the cafeteria with science projects for their annual science fair. Family members and friends were invited to come and see the displays of what students in kindergarten through fourth grade had studied using the scientific method. For their projects, each student was required to define a problem, form and test a hypothesis, analyze data and draw conclusions, then report observations.
Jimmy Dugan displays his science project. He tested drumsticks to see which type, plastic-tipped or wooden-tipped, would produce the longest vibration on a cymbal.
