Felton Laboratory School seventh-graders, from left, Georgiana Goodwin, Meagan Greene and Alana McCants construct barriers to contain a micro-sized robot to simulate an oil spill cleanup device. The experiment was a part of the 4-H National Science Experiment Eco-Bot Challenge. The event encouraged students across the nation to become scientists for the day. Students used various surface control designs and the Eco-Bot’s features to determine the most effective cleanup solution for the simulated oil spill.
Scientists for a day
