Eighth-grade student Lily Love, left, and partner Joseph Sanders, ninth, explain how their automated marble track project works at Cassville’s Summer Science Fair. They made the project from a robotics kit the school ordered under the guidance of robotics teacher Robbie Artherton, along with some duct tape, cardboard and a little ingenuity. The students took a video of their creation in action for their teacher to show to future classes. Love also did a project about solving crimes using forensic anthropology.

Pre-school, kindergarten and first-grade students worked in groups to conduct various experiments, which were displayed at the Cassville Summer Science Fair. In this project, students conducted a test to see which Marigold flower would last the longest — the one without soil, without water or without sunlight? They concluded from their findings that the plant without soil perished the fastest. Julia Kilmer/reporter@cassville-democrat.com
