As other students slept in, our intrepid scientists endured blowing winds and cold temperatures to arrive in style at the Richard J Daley College 2014 Science Fair. They waited for approximately 2 hours as judges carefully combed through the hundreds of research papers and write ups. When their time came, each participate explained his or her project with confidence and finesse. Of the 156 projects, only 16 were chosen to go on to the City Fair. Unfortunately, none of our projects were chosen, but our scientists took it all in stride, promising to continue with a science project next year in high school!
