Walter The Manatee
Inspired by the manatees she saw in Florida, Serena did a project on the marine mammal for the annual South Delta Science Fair. As always, there were many wonderful and creative science projects, but the big boys with their homemade trebuchet catapults stole the show, especially when they taught the young ones to make mini-catapults and they all started launching marshmallows everywhere...
The other fun part? Singing "I'm A Manatee" (by John Lithgow) all day long...
