Wenonah Elementary fourth grader Emily Belyansky won Honorable mention at this year’s Brookhaven National Lab Science Fair.

Belyansky’s project studied fire resistant balloons. She researched why and how the balloon doesn’t pop.

“One time, I saw a guy lighting up a candle and letting the fire touch an inflated balloon,” she wrote on the project’s description board. “It didn’t pop! After that, he showed that the balloon had water in it. Ever since, I’ve been wondering if the temperature of the water matters. I thought that this would make a great science fair project.”
