The projects were on display in the cafeteria as part of the school’s annual health and science night.

Parents had a chance to examine their child’s work and then explore several information booths that were set up in the gymnasium.

“This is cool,” said fourth grader Jocelyn Loomis as she looked at X-rays of different bones.

The X-ray table was one of several options available in the gym.

Students could also climb the rock wall and enter to win one of two bicycles that were donated by the Fulton Teachers’ Association.
