SCFG parent Christina Horner was determined to provide her daughter with as many meaningful science and engineering experiences as possible. Here’s her kindergartener’s perpective of the trip.

The USA Science and Engineering Festival was incredible!

I went with my daddy, mommy, brothers and my cousin, Kyle.  There were many people and many activities, like filling balloons with oobleck and fizzy stuff (mom’s note: sulfurate acid and baking soda), making a cannon and building towers with blocks.

My favorite activity was building a Simon.  A Simon is a lot like Simon Says.  You have to follow the colors on a little computer that doesn’t talk.  It was easy.  I used a circuit board, plastic fasteners, gaskets, lights, screws solder and a soldering iron.  It was VERY hot! A soldering iron looks like a screw and a pen, but instead when you put it to metal smoke comes out.  It makes the metal become glue.

The finished product

I can’t wait to go again!
