They’re little Einsteins!

Student-scientists performed their own experiments during the “Discovering the Desert” Science Fair at PS 253 in Brighton Beach on March 1–3.

The explosive discoveries that the miniature Marie Curies and pint-sized Max Plancks made were sure to electrify the scientific community, second-grader Adil Sadiq said.

“Some of them were about electricity and one was about a volcano. They were cool,” he said.

The little scientists chose topics in December and spent months conducting research and making their conclusions conference-ready.

Well aware of climate science’s growing relevance, Sadiq isolated and simulated changes in climate and temperature, he said.

“I put salt and then ice cubes, and then frost formed on the can,” Sadiq said.

Adil’s sister’s project made inquiries with applications in fields as disparate as fashion and fiber optics.

“It was about fabric and insulators and which fabric is the best insulator,” fourth-grader Eman Sadiq said.

The winner, according to the dyed-in-the-wool researcher, was fleece.
