Inside King's-Edgehill School

Our Budding Scientists

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Apr 2, 2019 7:41:00 AM

On Friday, February 22, our Junior School students were presented awards for outstanding Science Fair projects. Within each of our Grade 7, 8 and 9 groups, prizes were awarded for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place, as well as a smattering of honourable mention awards. The winners of 1st, 2nd and 3rd place were determined numerically from the evaluation forms that our judges used for each student. Honourable mentions were based on any number of possibilities (high marks overall, but not already a winner of a 1st, 2nd or 3rd place prize, an outstanding board, an outstanding presentation, crazy levels of knowledge of a topic, etc). These awards are below.

The Regional Fair will be held from the 1st to the 4th of April this year, at the NSCC campus in Kentville. The students were narrowed down from the field of 106 students to 16 students that were considered in “Round 2”, to the 9 that will represent us this year. The students that were selected are NOT necessarily the same ones who won 1st, 2nd or 3rd place positions in their classes, rather, they were the students that the judges felt would have the best chance to be successful at the next level and to vie for the opportunity to win one of four places to attend the National Fair, which this year is in mid-May in Fredericton, New Brunswick. Often, the difference between 1st, 2nd and 3rd place amongst our ribbon winners is down to decimal points, and tweaking of minor aspects of a board, a presentation, or a demonstration makes all the difference. There is also no set number of positions for any one grade, and all of the Junior School students are up for consideration for these 9 spots. The judges felt that the following people had the greatest chance of “bringing home the bacon” from Regionals, and I do believe the judges got it right:

Congratulations to all of our Junior School students for a job well done. I was truly impressed with the effort that each of them put into their work and with the quality of the boards, presentations and models that were presented!
