Science & Social Studies Fair Produces Incredible Presentations
Recently, over 160 incredible science and social studies projects were on display as part of the Homer Intermediate School’s “Science & Social Studies Fair!” This annual event invites fourth and fifth graders to create presentations focused on history or science, and then meet with a judge to discuss their project and answer questions about what they’ve created. After the judges meet with all the participants, awards are given out.
For the 2019 competition, the grand prize winners in the science category were Garrett B. for his project “Hold the Yolk,” and Emma E. for her project “The Science of Magnets.”
The first-place winner in the social studies category was Maddelyn D. for her project “Lady Liberty.” The second-place winners were Dane F. and Cooper H. for their project “D-Day,” and there was actually a tie for third place; Abigail R. for her “History of the Light Bulb,” and Randy W. and Gwen C. for their project “Declaration of Independence.”
Winners in the science competition can be invited to participate in the Regionals in March, while winners in the social studies contest are awarded prizes from The Living History Museum. Following this year’s school competition, both Garrett and Emma will be advancing to regionals in Syracuse!
Congratulations to all of our contestants!
