Science Fair & Bike Rides

Each year eighth graders at RCLS design a science fair project and complete experiments at home. Nico chose to do an experiment about which solution (lemon juice, dish soap, coke, water, vinegar, etc) would take the tarnish off US coins. Here Nico is taking before pictures of his coins before dropping them into each solution. The coins will be in the solution for 24 hours and then he will remove them, wipe them off and take more photos.
