Dozens of District 16 secondary school students put on a well prepared display of their interests in science and scientific thinking at the 2010 science fair at Harkins Middle School Thursday March 25th. The judges were impressed with the quality of the work, attention to detail and the sincerity of the presenters as they visited each of the projects. There was plenty of originality of the scientific questions many of the students attempted to answer through creating and testing their own hypotheses. Other projects displayed scientific phenomenon that students were keen to investigate.
