Jr. High Science Fair Explores the World
The famous chemist Robert Boyle once said, "from a knowledge of God's work we shall know Him." This reality was felt by the Junior High at Hillcrest as they prepared for their annual Science fair.
Walking through the exhibits, one could see the profound investigation and discovery the students achieved. From dancing corn-starch by the power of sound-waves to a toy car powered by water, the Junior High students used their imagination to discover the inner-workings of God's established laws on creation.
Using the scientific method, outlined by Francis Bacon, students worked to understand creation. Bacon, famous for his thoughts on creation, once said, "God has placed no limits to the exercise of the intellect he has given us, on this side of the grave". The Junior High students were seen expressing their joy in knowledge and new found wisdom as they had discovered the inner-workings of God's system.
Many adults were marveling in the presentations by the Junior High students as they explained their exhibits. Drawing reference from Isaac Newtons thoughts on knowledge, communicated in his famous saying, "If I have seen further it is only by standing on the shoulders of giants," students worked to communicate their understanding of the various physical properties they engaged in their science projects.
Science continues to be a growing field, where innovation and creativity are needed. The physical properties of the world, established by God through creation, must be understood. God bless the Junior High students who have continued to understand God by applying their knowledge daily.
