Heartland students participate in science fair

Heartland students were putting their science skills to the test Friday afternoon, and showing off what they learned.

Fifth and sixth grade students in Atlanta formed a hypothesis and conducted experiments for the annual science fair.

Those students came up with the ideas for the experiments on their own. Some of those ideas included if 'Mentos Mints' can cool down boiling water and if worms can survive longer in different variations of soils. Students that participated in the science fair said that it was a great learning experience.

"I think it's a lot better for our environment to see if we can learn something new in agriculture or new things in life," said Jordan True, Atlanta C-3 School 6th Grader.

Each student received a ribbon for participating in the science fair. First through third place trophies were also awarded to the students with the best projects.
