The inaugural Middle School Science Fair brought out the best in eighth grade scientists, engineers and budding chemists. Each student selected a project to explore and spent the semester testing their hypothesis and formulating a presentation for the fair which was held Dec. 12. Professionals from various science and engineering fields and upper school AP science students served as judges while the eighth grade students presented their findings.
There were five categories including: biological science (life science); biological science (behavioral science), chemistry, earth/environmental science, and physical science & mathematics.
At the awards ceremony, fifteen students won honors in the five divisions. From this group of winners, selected projects will advance to represent Charlotte Christian in the Regional North Carolina Science & Engineering Fair to be held in February at UNC-Charlotte.
“I am very excited that the middle school is hosting its first Science Fair and that it will now be annual event,” shared Mrs. Diep Stamps, eighth grade science teacher and fair director. “While students learn important lessons in class, science becomes more relevant when they can see the practical application in their own projects.”
