COSTA MESA — Taio Cruz' radio hit "Dynamite" set the rhythm to shake it.
A small group of soon-to-be first-graders shook their stuff and a small plastic bottle filled with toilet paper and water as they made paper pulp.
The shaking was just the first step to making paper — a process that includes using small screens to drain it and press it, and sponges to absorb any extra water. The science experiment was one of a series on paper and wood the kindergarten class had completed.
"We're kind of fitting in one last experiment before camp is over," said kindergarten teacher Stacy Cislaw.
The kindergarten class was one of 10 classrooms buzzing Thursday with scientific discovery as students finished up their science fair projects that were be presented to their parents Friday.
The nearly three-week, half-day Newport-Mesa Summer Science Institute gave about 320 K-6 students from across the district hands-on math and science summer enrichment.
