Hannah won (among six other qualifiers to move on to district) the 6th Grade Science Fair! Hannah and Melissa worked hard on this project during the last month. As an outsider, it is a pretty cool project.
Melissa often makes sour dough pancakes made from a 100-year old start. Hannah was curious if she could make her own start and then determine in which liquid it would grow best. They tested distilled water, apple juice, pineapple juice, lemon juice, raw milk, and coconut water.
It was actually pretty amazing…they captured their own yeast and bacteria “in the air” and nurtured them over 12 days to see which start grew the most and then which start made the most delicious pancakes.
Hannah now moves on to the district competition. It should be fun to see how she does at the district competition.
