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!
