Saul, 5th grader: "I've loved SiE and still do. I especially enjoyed the cabbage juice experiment because it changed colors with acids and bases. SiE is something that everyone should have the opportunity to do. I will take these experiences with me for the rest of my life." Alva, 5th grader: "I like SiE because if you're curious about something and want to know the answer, science can help you figure out the answer. When I grow up I want to be a scientist."
