This looks like way too much fun for a Science Fair Project, doesn't it? We probably had more fun than you're supposed to have doing science, but that's where this lesson comes into play. The snowshoeing wasn't part of the project, just part of the downtime between taking measurements for the real project taking place in the great outdoors!

We got up early Saturday morning to measure snowboard speeds at 8am, 10am, 12pm, 2pm and 4pm to determine what time of day the snow conditions are the fastest. We marked the start and finish with 2 ski poles and he snowboarded down 3 times for each time of day.
