One student did a project that would affect his family’s income.
“I wanted to find out if we should feed our cows grain or grass,” Ethan Music said.
Music’s family raises cows for profit. He used the science fair to test what food would result in a larger cow and therefore a larger income.
“Now I know we should use grain when feeding our calves,” Music said. “It’s cool to know you can take something like science and apply it to your everyday life.”
McDavid said he expects this to be the first of many annual science fairs for Lawrence County.
“This is a wonderful turnout, an amazing group of kids,” McDavid said. “Everybody’s had a lot fun. It’s been a great learning experience.”
All students placing first or second in the Lawrence County Science Fair are eligible to compete in the FIVCO Science and Engineering Fair Saturday at ACTC.
Projects will be available for public viewing from noon until 1:30 on ACTC’s Roberts Drive Campus.
