St. Patrick’s Catholic School held their annual Science Fair Friday, with a total of 26 projects presented for public viewing and examination by a panel of nine judges.
Eighth graders Chase Archer, Anthony Burgos, Adrianna Canal, Beyonce Gonzalez, Angela Hernandez, Bree Martin and Zoe Meyer all had displays, as did seventh graders Riese Archer, Victor Diaz, Libby Hastings, Ethan Light, Amy McNamara and Elizabeth Rodriquez.
The sixth grade class of David Roberts, Gerardo Rodriquez, Sean Spencer, Kyhler Carstarphen, Marielene Ramirez, Kaiden Summerson, Sam Ridnour, Ashley Macias, Ceanna Light, Jayna Kenney, Brian Hernandez, Victor Ferman-Santid and Peyton Tunink also had projects at the fair.
Middle school science teacher Tony Cosentino said he was proud of the effort of his students.
“We seem to have better projects each year,” he said. “I also like seeing how far the students progress from each year to the next.
Perry Activities Director Tom Lipovac, Diane Hull, Dough and Pat Lathan, Dick Lundstrum, Kayla Rothmeyer, Scott Heldt and both Jim Caufield and Jeff Webster from ThePerryNews.com served as judges.
Judges asked each student to explain their project, discussing the goal in question, how it was approached and resolved and what items or tests were involved, along with any other questions they may have had. Projects were also judged on clarity, neatness and original work.
St. Patrick’s students from grades K-5 were able to spend time in the gym surveying the projects of their schoolmates as well.
