'Science Kid' project helps classmates learn
Each week, Shelly Clay gives a special bag to one of her second grade students. The student takes the bag home and uses the materials inside to design his or her own science experiment, usually with the help of their parents. The children practice at home and perform their experiments for the class on Friday.
"They have to be prepared to walk us through what's happening and why it's happening," Clay said. "And then answer any questions that the kids have."
