This year Kyle was able to participate in the Alpha Fair. It was a great experience for him and a lot of work. His Topic was Misconceptions-What False Facts do we believe? It was actually really interesting and I learned quite a bit.
For instance, did you know that the accused at the Salem Witch Trials were not burned at the stake, they were either executed or died in prison?
Or did you know that Thomas Edison did NOT invent the light bulb?
Or that Vikings did not have horns on their helmets (except for ceremonies)?
That Christopher Columbus and European Intellects did not think the world was flat?
That the declaration of independence was not signed on July 4?
That Paul Revere did NOT yell "The British are Coming."
That the Chicago fire was not started by Mrs. OLeary's cow but that the actual cause is unknown..
