Science Fair project winners for 2018/19
The Science Committee would like to recognize the students listed as Science Fair Project Winners.
Kindergarten through Second Grade:
1st Place: Alexander Zarate (Ms Nuckoll's Class)
Title: The Flying Rubber Band
Purpose: How long do I need to stretch the rubber band so it can fly far?
Conclusion: 25 centimeters is the best stretch for my rubber bands.
2nd place: Zakaryah Littrell (Ms Jessup's class)
Title: How does a Windmeter work?
Purpose: Find out how you can make your own instrument to measure the speed and power of the wind.
Conclusion: The higher the speed level of the fan, the faster the anemometer will go.
Third through Fifth Grade:
1st Place: Jacob Farmer (Ms Smith's class)
Title: Nu-Clear (Nucleus) Egg
Purpose: What happens when a raw egg and a hard boiled egg are placed in vinegar?
Conclusion: I learned how an egg in vinegar can be compared to the cells in our bodies. Just like the egg with no shell,
our cells have a nucleus on the inside but do not have a shell on the outside. It amazed me to watch a hard boiled egg
turn into a rubber ball.
2nd Place: Kai Adams (Ms McDonagh's class)
Title: Which fruits or vegetables make a better battery.
Purpose: Determine which fruits or vegetables make a better battery.
Conclusion: Apples make the best battery.
3rd Place: William Moore (Ms Barnes' class)
Title: Need for Speed
Purpose: Does weight or height affect how fast a car can travel down a ramp?
Conclusion: The shape of an item can have an impact on how well it can travel going down a hill.
CONGRATULATIONS to all of our winners! THANKS to all the students that participated! We had a LOT of good scientific projects.
