Science Fair and TKD

Our Tae Kwon Do school participated in a St. Jude's fundraiser. We individually raised money and we did a presentation at the huge mall complex near our house. My kids raised $255 and each did 300 kicks last Saturday. Brittany and Tyler did a sparring demonstration and our instructor broke 100 boards with his hands in one minute.

Tkdmama has some pictures on her site of the event.

In addition to the science fair and Tristan's birthday, we also had a homeschool science fair on Saturday. Another homeschool mom and friend organized it. It turned out great.
Brittany's project was "Can you taste the difference in regular and low fat foods?" She took some regular and low fat versions of Pringles, Wheat Thins, cheddar cheese and chocolate chip cookies and asked 15 people to sample and tell the difference. Only 4 out of 15 could tell the difference of all four.

Timothy and Tyler's experiment was: "Eating metal for breakfast: Can you remove the iron from breakfast cereal." We actually got the experiment from Steve Spangler. We bought Total, Special K, Cheerios, and store brand bran flakes. We actually got some iron from all four. It was the neatest thing!

This is the iron from the cereal. I know there is a glare, but all that dark stuff is iron.

Bethany, Brooke and Tristan's experiment was "Which gum will blow the best bubble." They got to choose 5 different kinds of gum, which is a real treat because they loooove gum.
