The WS 8th grade Science Fair was held Monday, March 4 from 5:00 to 6:00 in the AP room. Our student scientists put in many long hours over the winter months and the results were truly impressive! The class was encouraged to select a scientific topic that was of particular interest to them, and the amazing projects were as diverse as the students themselves. Topics ranged from in-depth research on the Hyperloop Train System and Synthetic Meat all the way to an examination of Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE).
Three entries were awarded First Place ribbons.
