Science Fair Results

Science Fair 17-18 Results

The judges were really impressed with the quality of the projects this year and the work the kids put into them.  Students awarded 1st or 2nd will go on to regional science competition in December at ASU.  Students nominated for North Carolina Student Academy of Sciences will also go to regionals and will present their research in a paper and presentation format to a panel of judges with time for questions at the end, much like a thesis defense.
Please congratulate these students when you see them!  They have worked so hard!
