Last week, six KES students took their science fair projects to the next level and competed in the Regional Science Fair. Mitchel Larkin, Cameron Stephens, Hannah Bryant, Justin Day, Greg Otto and Henry Mulherin were all chosen by the judges at the KES Science Fair to go on to the regional competition at the NSCC campus in Kentville. All the students had excellent presentations and did a great job sharing their ideas and discoveries with the judges, other students and the public.
The students merited many medals and awards during the closing of the competition. Cameron won a Shad Valley Scholarship. Hannah won a SILVER medal, admission to the Acadia University Huggins High School Seminar and a Shad Valley Scholarship. Mitchel won a GOLD medal, admission to the Acadia University Huggins High School Seminar and a Shad Valley Scholarship. Henry won a GOLD medal and the Canadian Federation of University Women: merit ward.
All of the students who participated in this year’s Regional Science Fair should be extremely proud of their efforts and achievements. They represented themselves and their projects very well and impressed the judges with their knowledge, creativity and determination. Well done, everyone!
