Woodbury's young scientists

A young science fair goer looks in awe at Armada Veraepalli volcano science fair project. Veraepalli said she chose volcanoes as her science project because she found them really interesting and like making it explode.

Liberty Ridge Elementary's brightest minds were out in full force on Thursday for the school's annual science fair.

On Jan. 20, dozens of students came out with their science projects which ranged from volcanoes to crystals to cookies to bubbles to slime.

Third grader Aiman Aamer switched science fair projects halfway through the research process. She had originally thought of doing her project on the solar system, but she decided the project wasn't "sciency" enough.

Aamer eventually decided to microscopes for her project.

"It's so interesting that you can take something so small, put it under the microscope, and able to see it so big," she said.

Each student who participated in the science fair received a participation ribbon and certificate.
