It’s science!

Emily Bialkowski/The Caledonia Argus  Ashly Ideker was an honorable mention winner with her experiment about the explosiveness of flour. You can imagine the crowd’s delight when she’d light the powdery material and then blow into a tube setting the flame several inches into the air. Mom stood by with a fire extinguisher just in case.

The halls of Caledonia Elementary School were filled with excitement March 18 when the school hosted its open house and science fair.
