CERG had the privilege of joining the Biralee International School Science Fair in Trondheim to witness the brilliance of young scientists in the making.
Everyone at the school (from the very young 3-4 year olds to the 10 graders) participated in the science fair.
The youngest pupils focused on a single project and tried to find out if the seed can grow when things it needs to become a plant are taken away or what happens to fruit when it is exposed to air and water.

The older pupils tried to answer more sophisticated scientific questions using the scientific method and these included very versatile topics such as how color affects taste, what kind of sorting algorithms are best for sorting randomized arrays of different lengths, can lemon power a mindstorm construction, how different acids affect eggs, how does a construction of a bridge add to its strength and many more.
We at CERG were very much impressed with what we have seen at the science fair and hope that we can visit again next year!
