It's Science Fair Day in the lower school and this morning JT set up his project. There are plenty of actual scientists in the parent population at our school, so many of the projects will be impressive. While Kid X splits the atom and Kid Y is running his double-blind experiment to cure heart disease, here at Sassafras House we debated what to do.
I'm a social scientist (read: not an actual scientist) and so the assignment is not exactly my strong suit. The chance that I can clone our cats in my ample weekend hours seemed slim. So we went for the sympathy card: We studied broken bones.
We got some books and learned how bones heal and then we got copies of JT's before and after x-rays. We included some pictures of his various casts. JT is pleased with his project and it turned into a very nice remembrance of his broken leg.
Now I'll just sit back and wait for MIT to phone with the scholarship offer.
