Sometimes scientists have to improvise in the moment, and that's exactly what Mrs. Seff's sixth grade science class did Friday morning, by adding a science twist to a classic favorite breakfast food! The class won a bagel breakfast from the PTA for their fundraising efforts for the Turkey Trot!  Before eating their bagel breakfast, students had to complete the first ever "Bagel Lab" by determining the mass of their bagels. Students used triple-beam balances to determine masses of the bagels before and after adding their favorite spread! Once the eating began, they determined that the average mass of the bagels that were eaten was 130.0 grams!
