Awesome Day at BJM Science Fair!

Alison and Bill had a super time today at the Beverly J. Martin Science Fair!  The theme of this year's fair was CHANGE.

Our fifth buddies created trout illustrations and a great poster
charting the change of their BROWN TROUT.
Students from pre-K to 5th used their knowledge of insects and dichotomous keys to learn about insects that spend most of their lives living in our streams.   The insects are great food for trout, and tell us the water is clean.
Alison (CU Intern) helps a young scientist identify a specimen.
It's a Stonefly Larva!
After 2 or 3 years, these insects CHANGE- they go through metamorphosis, and emerge from the stream as flying adults! Its all about CHANGE!   Thanks to Ellie and Leo, and the staff at BJM for all their work to put this together- see you next year!
