        Students at Idaho Falls High School got together to show off some of their science projects.

This fire dancing to music is just one of the many neat experiments freshman students at Idaho Falls High School put together.

They’re competing against each other for a spot at the City Science Fair which is run by Portage Incorporated.

“So they got to choose whatever topic they wanted to, we told them that they should pick something that they’re interested in the only stipulation is it had to be something more in the fields of Chemistry or Physics” said 9th Grade Science Teacher Matthew Houser.

“I play piano and guitar and violin and ukulele and I like to sing and when I learned we were doing this, I’m not always the best at science and not everything in it interest me, but I was really excited cuz I’m like, I want to do something with music” said Freshman Aria Berger.

Students had three months to come up with an idea, research it and put it all together.

“It took me like a couple hours to do the, like to get the whole experiment done and then it took several hours to do the board” continued Berger.

“It makes me super proud to walk through here and just see the hard work that these kids have been doing. It’s just incredible and I mean, some experiments….super super, complicated and super sophisticated, and some of them are even really great experiments but they’re simple” said Houser.

The City Science Fair will be on April 19th at University Place in Idaho Falls.

Those contestants who win the City Science Fair will then be taken to Lagoon in Utah to compete against different schools from Idaho and Utah.
