Creativity and Science come together at Albany Elementary School

By WKTV News

UTICA, N.Y. (WKTV) - A science fair was held inside the gymnasium at Albany Elementary School in Utica on Friday, with students in grades from kindergarten through sixth grade getting involved.

The younger students do a class project to get some experience working with the scientific method while the 4th, 5th and 6th graders do an individual project.

The topics have to be approved by their teacher and many times the students have so much fun working on their experiment that they forget that they are also learning.

"The purpose really is to have our kids practice using problem-solving skills, do some critical thinking, give them some skills that are going to help them be gainfully employed in the future," said Sixth Grade Teacher Pam Reece.

The projects were very creative this year, including a student who made his own radio and another who made a clock out of a potato.
