Discover how our kids are being empowered to create their future!
Natrona County Schools hosted the District and Jr. Regional Science Fair on Saturday, Feb. 7th at Verda James Elementary School.
Students from NCSD in grades 4th and 5th competed at the District Science Fair level. Students who have an interest in hands-on learning and science are challenged to utilize their imagination in completing their project while developing research and problem-solving skills. Although students in this grade level are not eligible to move on to the State Science Fair, they are provided a valuable and fun opportunity to gain experience to help them with future projects.
The Regional Science fair was held in conjunction with the District Science fair and provided students in grades 6th-8th the opportunity to participate. Participation in a Science Fair provides students with the opportunity to “model the work of professional research scientists” while improving upon their scientific method, presentation and public speaking skills.
The Charles E. Wolff Outstanding Science Fair Award is named after Charles Wolff, a former Science Fair judge and uranium executive. Participants are considered on the Best of Show winners from each category in the District competition. Trinity Zierden, grade 5, of St. Anthony’s Tri-Parish School had the overall outstanding science project! Her name will be added to the plaque and the traveling award will be hung in her school for the remainder of this school year.
The Excellence in Science Award, given to a deserving District or Jr. Regional Science Fair environmentally related entry, was presented to Brooklyn Wistisen by Carla Martin from Casper Energy Laboratories.
