Fourth-Grade Science and Engineering Fair Winners Recognized thumbnail167807

JFK and RCK fourth graders displayed their hard work on Jan. 30 at the schools’ annual science fairs, now expanded to include engineering design. Students from both schools showed how much they had learned about their topics from their research, experiments and design process.

The first-place winner at JFK’s science/engineering fair was Evan Sambo for his project “UV Rays:  SPF Protection.” Also recognized were first runner-up Mackenzie Godbout (“Pop A Wheelie”), second runner-up Casey Flad (“Sweet or Meat”) and honorable mentions Jack Fontaine (“Why Does the NHL Freeze Pucks?”), Sachin Kamath (“Keep Your Lawns Healthy and Moist with Less Water”) and Teagan Kuhn (“Does the Cold Really Drain the Battery Out of Your Phone?”).

RCK’s first-place winner was Juliana Rochford for her project “What Swim Suits You.” Ruby Micali (“Age vs. Memory”) finished second, Ethan Fitch (“Lego Cleanup”) came in third, Mateo Baerga (“Go Bananas”) earned fourth, and Ryan Davis (“Dissolve the Rainbow”) and Ariana Russo (“The Effects that Drinks have on Teeth”) tied for fifth place.

“It was an exciting evening and the projects were truly amazing,” said JFK Principal Deborah Smith. “Our future is in great hands. The next generation of innovators showed that their imaginations will take them far.”

The top three winning students for each school were recognized at the district’s Feb. 27 Board of Education meeting.
