Proud parent of an 8yr old tonight. She worked hard, but was pissed she didn't get grand prize who built a jet engine or something. Next year "we'll get em" I told her.

Her medal was made in china.



Is nothing sacred anymore? America's future scientists recieving chinese medals?

Maybe I can get her one done up here in the USA!

Shame about the medal.



Nice work on her part!

it was something about how different fuels run cleaner or something in jet engines.

hers was an experiment with soil and plants and how they grow with different water types distilled/purified/tap/rain water

They could have at least engraved it on the back...

Awesome! I still have fond memories of winning my county wide junior high science fair when I was in the 8th grade.

Great for her!

Not bad to win 1st place in the science fair for all of China.

congrats to you both!

take that girlie for an ice cream sundae or something.

Our local college just had its science fair...It was great to see
what young, fertile minds could do...

Grand prize: Guy built a volcano out of papier mache.
He then mixed water and dry ice in a cup placed
inside the volcano. Looked just like a real eruption. Made the front page of the local paper and
was the lead story on two of the local tv newscasts.

Of course, he now gets to compete in the statewide competition.
Says for that, he's going to add colored lights inside the volcano
to cast an eerie glow...

Word is that Popular Science magazine wants to do a story on him.

Screw the medal

Show us the project!

Also - who cares where the medal was made? Everything is made in China.

And unfortunately - in a couple generations - unless we do something fast - China will out pace us in top scientists.

Next time she should tell the judges her plant experiment was designed to determine whether or not the expression of aquaporins in the plasma membrane has a positive effect on growth under salt stress.

Thats really good, you should be proud. If I where you I'd reward her, if you can afford it buy her something she's been wanting or something.


Keep her interested in school and in working hard .
