Science fair: Corbett Preparatory School of IDS held a science fair last month. Judges from schools such as the University of South Florida and the University of Tampa critiqued projects from third-, fourth- and fifth-grade students. Fifth-grade students at the school near Carrollwood created individual projects, while third- and fourth-grade students were allowed to work in groups. They learned about the scientific process by designing experiments to test hypotheses and then created displays to showcase their findings. The projects covered topics such as whether bottled water is better than tap water and what kind of sugar is preferred by ants. Students from Corbett Prep will compete in the Hillsborough County STEM Science and Engineering Fair in February.
