Hi Folks!Â Here’s zbiiirstez
the latest — a brilliant Chinese plot to crush America’s lead in science and technology!
Oh wait. Seems it is just one Colorado school’s list ofÂ Â science fair rules. Thanks, reader Bree, for sending it in. The list:
For safety: Project displays and posters may NOT contain any of the following:
NO: Organisms (living or dead).
NO: Microbial cultures/fungi/molds/bacteria/parasites.
NO: Plants in Soil.
NO: Flammable Substances.
So I guess if you are doing a science experiment involving the effect of dust on a desk, you’re ok. But beyond that, it gets very tricky. Â And, worse, interesting. And so it is verboten. All for the safety of the kids, of course. — Lenore
