Max Hays High Science Fair - Jan 31, 2007 Cleveland, Ohio

This past week I had the opportunity to judge a science fair at Max Hayes High School.

Other judges were present from NASA, Swagelok, and a variety of other locations. Quite the learning experience. Entries were from 9-12 graders.

Global warming I must say was getting more attention from the 10th graders than the Executive Branch of our legislature!

Hypothesis: Garbage is overfilling our landfills!
Root Cause: It is not going away fast enough

I heart the logic train on this one! ALL ABOARD!

Who needs mulitmillion dollar turbines as drivers of economic development when you can make them out of styrofoam cups, and McDonalds straws. This cat's project talked of how he stayed up all night counting the rotations to see if wind really does blow harder in the later hours.

Hell you should have seen all the "green" homes built out of Dow foam products at the Home Show!

This entry involved taking an aquarium of water and heating it up. yeah! Along the lines of our current administrations
'cutting edge' climate research!

Ahhh the timeless mantra:


I was hoping to see this here.

You dont need any notes on these... its just a reflection of what is in the hearts and minds of 9-12th graders in our city.

What is the effect of acid rain?
What local businesses cause most of it?
What local businesses externalize those costs?
What local businesses are losing ground?
