The entire week we worked on the project to help the girls understand the material, practice their presentation, and work on the poster. By the day of the presentation, they were completely ready to go. The science fair was held at the local Palalaua College and Primary Schools from four different districts competed, all on projects pertaining to Adapting to Climate Change. There were some really great projects there and I was worried about how my kids would do but I shouldn’t have even worried, the kids beasted their presentation and blew the judges away. They placed 2nd overall and that qualified them to go on to the National Science Fair in Apia next month. Just seeing the smiles on the girls faces made this whole last week of stress worth it. They were thrilled beyond belief. On the whole way back to the village the kids stood up in the back of the pickup and sang, holding their trophy above their heads. It was quite a sight to see them so happy.
The girls, proud as can be!
