Centralia’ Intermediate School’s halls were packed the night of January 30.

At least 108 Centralia fifth-grade students stood at tables lining the walls of the CIS gymnatorium and the hallways to the east.

Trenton Brooks, front, Charlie Carrico, center and Hunter Hull, back, giving their invention prototype, the “Mean Green Digging Machine,” a final inspection before presentations begin at the CIS Science Fair.

Those tables were covered with laptop computers and all manners of wooden, cardboard, plastic and metal devices of the students’ devising.

It was the school’s annual fifth-grade science night and a delight to the at least 300 people who attended.

Projects ranged from a fifth-grader-tall cardboard prototype of an automated “Defense Partner” to help one improve their basketball game; a colored mock-up of highlighting marker that would read-aloud the passages it is used to high light; a remote-controlled snack delivery system.
