Be There: Brewer Elementary School Science and Math Extravaganza

(WTVM) -

Brewer Elementary School is taking the art of science fair projects to a whole new level. The school recently held a Science and Math Extravaganza.

Students who showcased their work got hands-on experience with reptiles and birds from Callaway Gardens.

Some of the science fair project themes included:  "Which kind of cleaning solution will get the most germs off your hands?"  "Will identical plants be affected by being fed different liquids?"

"I wasn't worried about what place I was getting, I was just worried about getting the good grade I was supposed to," stated Rashad Favors.

Favors, an aspiring Geologist, received an "A" and first place in the competition for figuring out the answer to the question: "How many millimeters above sea level can a Tsunami get?"

"I guess that was a good choice," said Favors.

Students like Favors met with judges for one-on-one interviews about their experiment.

"It is very important," explained Principal Cenobia Moore. "This is about exposure. We want our students at Brewer to know more than just what they would learn within the walls of the classroom."

Students also had the opportunity to play math games using cards, and get an up-close and personal view of animals from Birds of Prey at Callaway Gardens and Oxbow Meadows' reptiles.

''I love to see the excitement on their faces and have them ask questions about the scientific method that they didn't know before," said Patrice Woodall, math academic coach.
