“Do Dogs Like Certain Colors More than Others?” Using dog treats
for her experiment, Ella found white and red were the most favored.
Each student received a certi cate and a science fair t-shirt designed
by two of the students, Tali Lyons of Yorktown Heights and Rachel

For two to three weeks following the fair, each child presented his or
