Young Scientists Showcase their Projects at WGMS


WGMS Science FairOn January 26, WGMS students displayed Science Fair projects that explained the results of their research to their fellow students, judges, and families who came in the evening to view the exhibits.

Each project was judged on: the uniqueness of the problem; how well the hypothesis could be tested; design and procedures of the experiment; and how appropriately the materials and equipment were used to carry out the testing.

This year's fair had 69 students that made 40 projects. Student projects were entered in the category for Human Sensory Perception, Psychology, Health and Consumer Studies, Biology, Chemistry, Earth Science, Physics, and Engineering.

Science teachers and co-coordinators, Judy Allen and Jereme Davis recognized 17 eighth-grade students for entering the Science Fair each of their three years in middle school: Matthew Barrington, Amanda Casolare, Alyssa Congel, Molly Coyne, Zara Dafoe, Krystian Lata, Madeline LeFevre, Ava Mattimore, Ryan McLane, Gabrielle Mitchell, Adrianna Mondello, Adam Pierce, Brandon Scott, Abigail Searle, Joseph Sparks, Alexander Toumbacaris, and Jonathan Welles.

Judges were teachers, principals, and community "experts from SRC and ESF," who questioned student exhibitors about their projects. Many of the judges commented on how innovative the projects were this year.
