Reid takes fourth in State science fair, second in life sciences!

Reid worked very hard last year to develop and carry out a really interesting science fair experiment. He conducted an artificial evolution experiment using yogurt and yeast microbes. He exposed them to increasingly high concentrations of vinegar. By doing this he was able to gradually increase their tolerance to vinegar which he demonstrated scientifically.

Here Reid is setting up the experimental vinegar concentrations.
Reid records the progress of the experiment in the lab notebook

Here is his final poster:

Well, Reid also did very well in the state science fair competition last year. He took fourth overall in the entire state of Maine, and was given the second place prize for the life-sciences category. This is amazing!
