St. John’s students create their own science experiments
Charlie Endres loves his Legos and racing cars.
He put them together and created a science experiment for the annual St. John the Baptist School (Vermillion) science fair.
The other students in grades 3 to 6 –- and some first- and second-grade students –- also put their creativity to good use and filled the community room at the school on Friday.
A fifth-grader, Charlie decided to determine if the weight of the Lego car had an effect on the distance it would travel.
