Dennis Gosnell, Assignment Editor

Children from Good Shepherd Lutheran School, Nicoma Park School, Pleasant Hill Elementary School, and Traub Elementary School participated in the STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math) science fair held in the main dining hall.
Nicoma Park Intermediate took home the award for most awards with 15 students receiving an award for their projects.
A total of sixty-seven children’s displays covered the areas of physics, earth and space, botany, biochemistry, environmental science, zoology, consumer product comparison, medicine and health, microbiology, and behavioral and social science.

Each child researched, experimented, and built displays to learn about the importance of scientific research and development. One student examined how caffeinated beverages and caffeine-free beverages affect plant growth. Another student used everyday trash to make a roller coaster to show the value of recycling old materials to make toys instead of buying and wasting money on new toys.
