Question: I’d like to help my child with a science fair project. What suggestions do you have?
Answer: That’s a very common question every spring, usually just days before the project is due. Plan ahead, and do something innovative. “The Effects of Light on Seed Germination,” and “How Plants Respond to Music” are overdone and worn out. Pick something with a useful message to gardeners, something that is truly informative and applicable. And, as our moms always taught us, do your work early.
