A Blue Ribbon at the State Competition

Showing off the Blue Ribbon
Ben received a Blue Ribbon at the State Competition for the 2013 Science and Engineering Fair held at CCRI for his animation project. Judging Day, Saturday, was a long day starting at about 10:00 Ben had to stand by his display was judges by three judges.  He ended up showing the display to at least six judges just because everyone wanted to see it. Congrats Benjamin! Ben always had a crowd around his display whenever he was showing the Zoetrope. Everyone seems to like spinning things with flashing lights.  Ben also won the raffle and got a $100 gift certificate to be used at Best Buy. We are all so very proud of the hard work and great presentation Ben did. This coming Wednesday is awards night. . . which we are looking forward to.
