Science Fair: ASM students onto the Regionals!

Posted by Joanna on March 14, 2019

As most of you know, I very much look forward to our Science Fair every year. I recognize and appreciate the tremendous amount of work that goes into each project. From selecting the topic, to testing hypotheses, documenting and presenting, there are many steps along the way. Setbacks and challenges are sure to occur and an important part of the process is having students learn to work through them. I like to remind everyone that science fair is a journey, not a destination!

I appreciate the support shown by the ASM community, including our panel of judges selected for their expertise in STEM. Rebecca Casey, Tina Collins, Dave Medvitz, Kelly Walsh, Amy Warner, Joanna Warner and John Wiggins conducted interviews of our 6th, 7th and 8th year students and rated their projects. Ten participants will advance to compete in the Northeast Regional Middle School Science and Engineering Fair on May 3 at UMass Lowell. Please join me in congratulating the following students:

MS7   Xavia Banigan           Molding Memories: Man vs. Machine
MS6   Julia Barnas              Smartphones
MS7   Emma Diamantis     Does Compost Matter?
MS6   James Diamantis     What Types of Candles Burn the Longest?
MS7   Anna Du                     Investigating Aggregation of Marine Microplastics Utilizing a Low Cost Machine Learning & Infrared Spectroscopy Equipped ROV
MS7   Klarysa Glasko          Light or Lamp?
MS7   Demi Hatzigiannis   Box Soundproofing
MS8   Alicia Li                      Developing an Environmentally Friendly Air Conditioner
MS7   Jeffrey Pan                 Which Floor of a House Will Have the Highest Humidity?
MS7   Heidi Siegler              Boat Drag

I was very impressed, as I hope you were, with the wide variety of scientific and engineering projects our students presented with enthusiasm, reflecting their individual personalities and areas of interest. Thank you to everyone who attended this year’s Science Fair!
