USD 490/Kiwanis Science Fair winners announced
"Ceiling Mountains and Floor Mountains" by Charlie Grange (GE fourth grade) and "The Big One That Got Away" by Jackson (EMS eighth grade) and Quinn Houseman (EMS sixth grade) were the Co-Grand Champions of the 2018 USD 490/Kiwanis Science Fair.
Charlie Grange's project was the Earth Science Division Champion. Jackson and Quinn Houseman's project was the Physical Science Division Champion. The judges couldn't pick one project over the other, so they tied for Grand Champion.
"Berry Interesting DNA" by Erin Kistler, Regan Lattey, and Meghan Ramsey (EMS eighth grade students) won the Biological Division.
Grandview fifth grade students Sophia Beggs and Addison Brockway won the Mathematics Division with "Energy Displacement."
Three hundred USD 490 Kindergarten through eighth grade students participated in the annual USD 490/Kiwanis Science Fair on March 2.
One hundred and twenty projects lined tables in the Butler County Community Building, each demonstrating the scientific process for identifying a problem, presenting a hypothesis, and testing that theory to prove or disprove the original assumption.
Students set up their projects, which were judged by Kiwanis members, high school science teachers, and high school students.
The public is allowed to view the entries from 7:30 - 8:15 p.m.
