For Valley students, spring is the season for science fair fun | Slideshow

Kids discover science every year in school, but it never gets old, either for them or the parents helping them with it.

At Fall City Elementary School, the parents running experiments in the school gym were almost as excited as the youngsters trying their hands — or feet, over at the “oobleck” station — at how this science stuff works. And at Snoqualmie Elementary School’s Arts and Science Night, many parents were acting as their young scientists’ lab assistants, keeping them on track in their presentations and running errands, as needed.

Lena Morrill had to go out to the car to get some more hydrogen peroxide so her son Brock could demonstrate his winning volcano project again, for instance, but she kept her involvement to a minimum.

“I did the whole thing by myself,” Brock proudly announced, and his mom agrees, adding “We got down to the nitty-gritty with the scientific process on this one!”
