Which liquids rust the most metals? What’s keeping your burger fresh? What ratio of sugar to corn syrup produces the best-tasting and best-textured marshmallow? Daniel Island School students in grades 6-8 answered these questions and many more as part of this year’s Science Fair competition. They presented the results of their work during an exhibit for parents last week. First place winners in each grade level have been invited to attend the Lowcountry Science Fair at the College of Charleston on April 1.
