Devotion Science Fair
I had the privilege to judge at Devotion Science Fair in Boston and I was impressed by the creativity I saw. Both social and natural sciences were represented and the projects ranged from the familiar ("which paper airplane flies best") to the speculative ("How is this exoplanet heated?") to the wonderfully creative ("What color is DNA of different fruits?"). The winner in the group I judged studied perception of gender norms in different age groups with a project that would be worthy of publication if they had a larger population size.
