‘All Ants Away’ Earns Award

‘All Ants Away’ Earns Award
RCK student Kate Vessalico earned an honorable mention award at the Brookhaven National Laboratory Elementary School Science Fair on May 5. For the fourth-grader’s “All Ants Away” research project about ants and their senses, Vessalico worked to determine how ants react to different scents, colors and inks. In the end, she concluded that peppermint oil worked best at keeping pesky ants away from human living spaces.
