2021 Science Fair Winners Announced

This year’s science fair was held virtually on Thursday, April 15. Small groups of students were placed in breakout rooms to present their projects through three rounds, with different judges cycling into the rooms each round.

“The science department is extremely proud of all the dedication that our conceptual physics students have put in this year,” Ms. Kelly McLane said. “Obviously, there have been twists and turns along the way, and we’re super proud of all the projects and ideas they came up with.”
