Claire's Science Fair

Several weeks ago Claire participated in her school's science fair, and unintentionally I neglected to post the pictures of her finished project. She and Mr. Morgan worked hard nearly every night that Claire was here at our house in the weeks before. Claire had to do an experiment, and she decided to answer the question, "Does the type of light source have an effect on the amount of damage done to an exposed surface?"
She set up several light sources--a halogen bulb, a flourescent bulb, and the sun--to shine on pieces of black craft paper for the same amount of time. Then she was able to see the differences in the paper's fading. She earned a 96 from her science teacher on the project, though she was disappointed that she didn't win a ribbon.
