Christopher Hagan, a 12-year-old from Garden Grove, kept four types of spoiled milk in his mother's kitchen for 21 days, all in the name of science. Some sat on the counter, the rest in zip-lock bags in the refrigerator. His quest: to determine whether milk spoils faster if it has a greater amount of fat. Does it? "Uh, no," Christopher concluded.

The boys barreled through the classroom door, holding up their freshly filled specimen bottles for others to see and relishing the chorus of "Ewwwwwwwwww!" "OK, grab your cups," exercise physiologist Tim Scheett told the next gaggle of boys, escorting them to the restroom while a lab technician put the first bottles on ice. It was urine sample day in a course called Boys Summer Science Challenge, one of the occasional reminders to the 20 students that this is no ordinary summer school class.

It's recess. Yet rather than play soccer or tag, the Montalvo brothers hover over a chess set in Roosevelt School's cafeteria in Santa Ana. "Dang," 8-year-old Ken says as John takes out a knight with a bishop. John, 9, rapidly dismantles all but Ken's king, but the game ends in a stalemate. Like dozens of other students on campus, the two brothers have the chess bug.

Jillian Schlesinger, 12, has always considered becoming a veterinarian. But it was a python named Penelope at the Science Career Options Conference at UC Irvine on Tuesday that settled any questions she may have had. "I can't believe that I'm really holding Penelope," Jillian said, her eyes wide as she stroked the snake. "I'm not even scared, either. I've just always loved animals and after hearing the speaker [Dr. Gayle Roberts], it convinced me that I will work toward becoming a veterinarian."
