    It wouldn't be a Science project for children if parents need to intervene and eventually do most of the work. Nonetheless, the great effort would definitely help to boost a student's grades because of how flawless the entire project looks like in the end.

    I don't remember my school projects being quite this complicated. It's a testament to just how far education has come for the kids of this generation don't you think?
