Science fair scramble 一團亂的科學展

The annual science fair was approaching and Mark and Kathleen still had no idea what project to do. “We could try making a pinhole camera,” suggested Mark. “No, we did that two years ago. We need to think of something better than that,” said Kathleen. They sat and thought, but every suggestion was either too boring or somebody had already done it. Then Kathleen jumped up, and said, “I know exactly what to do! This will be the most unbelievable science fair project ever!”

She sprinted off to the school science lab so fast that Mark struggled to keep up with her. By the time he got there, she had already got the beakers and flasks out of the cupboard. Mark watched in amazement as she connected the beakers and flasks with tubes, then added colorful compounds. She pulled out a burner and lit it under one of the beakers.

By now Mark was getting nervous. “I hope you know what you’re doing. That looks dangerous to me,” he said. But Kathleen didn’t think so. “Relax. Everything’s under control,” she said. The liquid in the beakers began to bubble and change color, and a strange smell filled the room. “We’re almost finished. I just need one more ingredient,” said Kathleen as she reached over and plucked a hair from Mark’s eyebrow. She dropped the hair into the bubbling beaker. Suddenly there was a huge flash, a mighty bang and cloud of smoke erupted from the beaker. When the dust settled, Mark couldn’t believe what he saw. “Oh no, Kathleen. You’ve really done it this time…”
