As for it not being middle school material, I have never heard of teachers screening science fair projects before they are done. When I was in school, it was a surprise what your project was until the day you presented. This would obviously not fly from the perspective of a teacher, but for a student trying it and thinking it might work, this could totally happen. If we are looking at the end result and saying that's the reason it is not science fair material, then most of the fogged entries (which have already been defended by tgentry) should also be rejected for the same reason.



Then you are just making stuff up. Our science fair was a lot more involving than "Hey kids, just show up with what you think is Science."

It involved an entire process of getting your project approved, filling out your Scientific Method plan, creating progress reports, etc.

I'd never expect this to even get past the approval process.

No. Yes.

I try to keep my mouth shut in ramyb threads for the most part but - really? This is so reminscent of the Floyd cover design it got my hackles up. That's an iconic image, still large in the public mind. Bad job, really.

Yeah, but he's going to stand to sell a lot of shirts, isn't that what it is all about?

No. Yes.

All of you rambling on about how many colors on the shirt may be missing the experiment involved. It's not about the number of colors, but the growth of the plant under a certain color.

On a side note, I really enjoy this design and appreciate the research put into it.

I was only asking because I though that he sold a similar shirt on his web site. I don't see it there any more, but if you want a laptop skin ...

That seems like an odd complaint when looking at some of the other entries, mine included.

To all the wonderful human beings complaining about this "not being middle school material" I don't remember any androids, frankenstein's monsters, or deadly robots at my science fair either. These shirts are supposed to be creative and fun, if you don't like it don't vote for it. To the middle age soccer moms that are terrified that this might be animal cruelty, or too much for little Timmy's young mind to handle, I would like to remind you that its a T-SHIRT! If you don't think you or your kid can handle the sight of dead cartoon turtles, just don't buy the shirt.

Wow, another one. IT'S A SHIRT!!!!! No one is suggesting that anyone actually fly a turtle. If you think that this shirt would make someone in your life go out and trap a turtle, then try to fly it with balloons, maybe you should have a talk with him about the difference between reality and fantasy.

Well that's what happened to the "Scientific Method" derby too if I remember correctly.

If a middle schooler ever did this experiment they would likely be put into a special education program. I think even if a 3rd grader were to do this I would question whether they were dropped on their head as a kid.
And if a kid were to do this experiment, they would probably get bullied and ridiculed similar to what Ramyb is currently experiencing.
Middle school is basically just like high school with lower expectations, it is not like elementary school where anything goes and everyone wins.

this really quite amazing, Kasey! As darkxxx mentioned I really love your designed and amzed at the range of work you submit. pretty frickin' awesome in my book. I think why this design isn't doing as well as it should the ever present dislike of creme colored shirts but I think its fitting for this design and can't really imagine it on any other color. gmv.

really stunning design as always patrick. I do have to agree that the theme isn't exactly clear however but so are number of other submissions this week with such bizarre ambigious theme to work with. gmv none the less.

Re: Prism Light Insight



Before the rejectinator hammer boings, I'd like to recognize the jar spilling blue sky, clouds and rainbows. Awesome, but pretty abstract. Here is a prism spilling light, combined with the wandering imagination of a boy who'd rather be anywhere else than a science fair. I hope you like it.
BIG VERSION HERE.

if you are refering to the paint splotches on foam "planets" I was trying to place spots and things, that a kid might do on a pumkpin, or other artwork of younger kids. 90% of the hand crafted things at a science fair aren't artistically finesse, and I was trying to capture that a bit.
