Thursday was the Salt Lake Valley Science and Engineering Fair. It was the Regional Science Fair for those who had advanced past their school science fairs, and then their district science fairs as well. My Cowgirl was one of those students and I was so proud of her.
She did a really fun project that was called Font and Impact of the Written Word. She tested 50 subjects on their memories of a list of words. Different subjects were given the list typed up in different fonts, and then tested on how many of the words they remembered. The object was to determine whether font type affected how easily someone remembered what they had read. She had a great time doing it, and thanks for those of you who helped her reach her quota of 50 subjects! You know who you are. So what do you think? Did people whose lists were typed up in a simpler font remember more words, or was it the people whose lists were typed in more busy/fancy fonts?
She's disappointed that she didn't place, or move on to Nationals, but I told her that I couldn't be more proud. Plus, to be honest - I'm not sure I have it in me to bear with her through another round of revisions to her display board! And I KNOW my wallet doesn't have another round in it!
It was a great experience for her, and I'm so grateful she had the opportunity. But I sure am glad not to have to worry about Science Fair again for another year!
