Quest fifth-grader Gabrielle Gaffney-Frens describes her science fair project to Ripon College chemistry professor Joe Scanlon. Her project explored what made ice melt fastest: one tablespoon of salt, one cup of water heated in the microwave for one minute, a hair dryer on medium heat or one cup of room-temperature water. Scanlon, fellow Ripon College chemistry professor Dean Katahira and their science students served as judges for this year’s Murray Park/Quest science fair.

   Young scientists at Murray Park and Quest showed off the fruits of their research and hard work last week Thursday at the schools’ science fair, judged by Ripon College professors and students.
