METUCHEN – Metuchen’s annual Campbell Elementary Science Fair was held on April 17 and 18, with over 300 third and fourth grade students participating. They researched and presented a wide range of topics of their own choosing. Projects explored magnetism, optical illusions, hummingbirds, electric circuits, plant growth, solar energy, paper airplane design, the effects of friction, the construction of The Islands of Dubai, the effects of plants on soil erosion, and the science of how cheese is made, among other topics. Families, friends, and students in grades 1-4 were able to visit the fair and learn many interesting things. The Science Fair was coordinated by elementary science teacher Jonathan Nolde, under the leadership of Principal Florence Carter and assistant Principal Brooke Kirschner.
