When Amy and James have to demonstrate a principle of physics for their school science fair, Amy decides to go big. While other kids make paper mache volcanos and drop eggs of the roof, Amy builds an intergalactic space ship so they can travel to another planet. 

I wrote this story a long time ago, back when I was doing Nanny Piggins. It was a challenge because I had a strict word limit, which is why it is a bit shorter.  I enjoyed the oppurtunity to write about something totally different. I'd never done science fiction before and I really wanted to do a 'Twilight Zone' style twist ending. I hope you like it.
