Dylan Viale was beaming Thursday night as kids and adults alike lined up to play his video game, which uses sound cues instead of visual cues. He designed it, he said, so his grandmother, who is blind, could play it.
The design won him first place in the Science Fair, and his game will go on to compete in the district-wide competition.
Dylan's was just one of 230 explorations of science on display Thursday night at the school. Everything from which fast food burgers molded the fastest (apparently, Jack in the Box and Wendy's get moldy the fastest, while McDonald's not at all), to how plants can generate electricity were explored by young minds eager to explore the wonders of science.
The students brought their friends and relatives as well, and the Hidden Valley multiuse room was packed for most of the evening with amped-up kids anxious to show off their work, and proud parents and relatives impressed with the results.
Who says science can't be fun?
