St. Timothy's School third grader Lainey Crisp took home a medal at the NC Central Regional Science and Engineering Fair (3A) held on February 2 at Hillside High School in Durham, NC. Lainey's project Why Do my Apple Slices turn Brown and What Can I do About it? was one of 10 winners in the elementary division that will advance to the NC Science and Engineering State Fair, which will be held in Raleigh on March 29-30.
Fifth graders Dexter Brickell and Jack Markham also received recognition at the regional fair, winning an Honorable Mention for their joint project titled The Proper Airflow of a Fan.
A total of eight St. Timothy's School students competed in the regional fair along with over 300 students from the 9-county region.
After setting up their displays and waiting for display approval, the students were interviewed by the judges at the competition. During the day-long event, the students were able to explore the projects entered by their peers. While the young scientists awaited the results of the competition, they participated in science related activities.
Congratulations to all the STS students who competed at the regional fair!
