Students at the Johnson City intermediate school showed off their hard work at a science fair. The 4th grade class has been working with mentors from Binghamton University in previous weeks to help them prepare.

A few of the projects included the effect of movement in quicksand, what type of soda creates the biggest eruption in a volcano and what drinks decay your teeth. That was the topic that Amelia Brown-Oliva and Norah Ford tackled.

Originally they thought apple juice would be the best for their teeth, but it turns out that wasn't the case.

"We set the teeth in for 24 hours and we figured out that coke rots your teeth. The Gatorade dies your teeth blue, because we used blue Gatorade, the apple juice turns your teeth yellow and the milk is the best for your teeth," said fourth graders Norah Ford and Amelia Brown-Oliva.

Norah actually donated several teeth she had previously lost to the experiment. There will be a science fair at the high school on Wednesday.
