Hudson Bonneville, 3, and his sister Harper Bonneville, 4, dig a path through sand for a rubber duck to travel down at the Lake Superior National Estuarine Research Reserve table during science night at Four Corners Elementary School on Tuesday, May 23. When they tilted the table and poured water on it, the duck made it to the bottom.
