What lesson does Ebright learn when he does not win anything at a science fair?
At the science fair, Ebright showed slides of frog tissues while other students had done real experiments. He had always been a bright student and explorer so it was sad for him to lose when everyone won something or the other. He then realized that to win a prize he had to do some real experiment and not just show slides.
