Students at DeKalb West School went beyond the classroom to learn more about the first aspect of STEM education. At this year’s DWS Science Fair, students made models, tested hypotheses and conducted experiments. They made models of chemical compounds and planets and explored electricity, how to make a battery using lemons, paper plane aerodynamics, and even asked which gum blows the best bubble among a variety of other topics.
