YORKTOWN, N.Y. -- Sixth-graders presented their original research projects at the fourth annual showcase held over two nights in March in Lakeland Copper Beech Middle School.

Parents, students, teachers, and administrators spent the evening walking around the two packed room while discussing the research with the student scientists.

Students worked in pairs or individually on their presentations.

"They chose different experiments to perform, gathered materials, analyzed data, graphed results and reached conclusions through research to help better understand the world around us," explained science teacher Judy Toledano.

The experiments displayed the scientific method from all areas of science including physics, chemistry, kitchen chemistry, energy, and use of potatoes for electricity, zoology, biology, and sports science.

The various experiments ranged from showing what happens to teeth with too much coffee or cola, to which brand of hand sanitizer smell lasts longest, and where bread molds best.
