Education > Close to 275 projects were on display at LAHS

By Tris DeRoma

The laws of science, biology, technology and engineering were on full display at the Los Alamos County Science Fair Saturday, as students proudly stood by their projects, eagerly answering any question the judges as well as the public had for them.
There were 275 projects on display, all diverse and interesting.
Want to know how sunlight is converted into electricity? How our immune system can do a better job at fighting cancer? What’s the best conductor of electricity? If you walked the halls of Los Alamos High School Saturday, you’d know the answers to these questions, and more.
If you stopped by sixth grade Pinon Elementary student Sasha Dolin’s exhibit, you’d also definitely find out at what temperature chocolate begins to melt.
“My mom makes chocolates all the time, and I kept thinking what I was going to be doing for my project,” she said.
So she put the question to her mother one day, and a pretty fascinating, if not delicious, science project was born. Turns out, no one knew exactly, so Dolin mapped out an experiment that involved charts and graphs detailing exactly what’s happening when a solid starts to transform itself into a liquid by way of heat.
