Jonathan Patton, 14, tries one of three mouthpieces from Alexandra Getty's project, "Evaluating Slurs of Different Brass Mouthpieces," during the Bayfield Middle School Science Fair on Wednesday. Jonathan is the son of music teacher John Patton. About 125 projects from mainly
eighth-graders - and a few seventh- and fifth-graders - were displayed in the gym, said eighth-grade science teacher Mike Seitz. Sixth-graders create a project as a class. Fifteen to 20 presentations will be entered in the regional competition March 5 at the La Plata County Fairgrounds.
