"As a pair of young children came by they handed over the hoop used to make the bubbles, letting each of the children have a turn. They weren't just idly killing time -- they were part of the Putnam County Public Library's annual science fair."

The text adds, "Bryan Edwards, a junior at DePauw, said community projects like Saturday's science fair help to foster a relationship between the University and the town around it."

"It also takes us out of our lab and gets us explaining science," Edwards tells the newspaper. "It's science at the most basic level, but it's still good practice in making science interesting to other people."
