JFK & RCK Fourth-Grade Science Fairs

Science proves sweet for competing JFK and RCK fourth graders   thumbnail216622

Science-minded fourth graders at John F. Kennedy Elementary School and Ruth C. Kinney Elementary School recently competed in the two schools’ annual science and engineering design fairs. The event was virtual at JFK, like last year, but in-person at RCK.

The students followed the Scientific Method and conducted multiple trials. They had to identify a purpose for their experiments, determine a hypothesis, list the materials and procedures, and reflect on their findings. 

JFK’s winner was Samantha Garatina for her project “Healthy, Strong…Organic.” Runner ups were Lily Murphy (“Measuring the Velocity of Slime Dropped 52 Inches”) and Matthew Stamatelatos (“Science is Sweet – Making Rock Candy”).

Liam Savage took first place at RCK for his “Weight is Tow-Tally Helpful” project, with Frankie Quinones (“Deflategate”) finishing second and Eva Abruzzi (“My Lips are Moving”) and Jack Ruiz (“Heat and Magnetism”) tied for third.

“We are so proud of all who participated,” JFK Principal Deborah Smith said.
