Science fair gives students chance to try out theories
DeKALB - The results are in on which middle school grade is the nosiest.
Seventh-graders are nosier than sixth- or eighth-graders - at least, that's what Clinton Rosette Middle School eighth-graders Siti Asma and Joly Wu learned. The girls were presenting their facts Saturday at the Illinois Academy of Science Region 5 Fair at Northern Illinois University.
More than 370 science projects were entered, about 90 of which will go to the state competition at the University of Illinois in Champaign.
Students entered projects in eight categories: physics, botany, behavioral science, chemistry and biochemistry, consumer science, environmental and earth science, microbiology and zoology, and health.
The fair was open to middle school and high school
