WAPS local science fair winners (02/09/2006)
The 43rd annual WAPS Local Science Fair was held Friday, February 3rd, at the Winona Middle School. Forty-four students in grades 5-11 presented forty-two projects in four categories: Consumer Science, Engineering, Life Science, and Physical Science. Thirty five community judges shared their expertise with the students as they evaluated each project. Projects were scored on ten criteria to determine an average score from three different judges. Ribbons (blue, red, and white) and certificates were presented to all participants. The top project in grades 5-8 received a plaque to recognize their high scoring project in each category. Top high school projects in grades 9-11 also received a plaque. Students in grades 6-12 now advance to the regional science fair to be held March 3, at St. Mary's University. A complete list of awards can be found on the local science fair link at www.rschooltoday.com/winonamiddle/projectscience. Congratulations to all who participated and good luck at future science fair competitions. Please direct all questions to Ken Mann, project science teacher, at Winona Middle School (494-1456).
