Feb. 24, 2023-- Students from Intermediate North’s Science Club and Kathleen Keller’s sixth-grade science class served as the passionate participants in the school’s annual Science Fair.
The fair was held Feb. 7, but planning and preparation began in the fall, when interested students were asked to select a science or engineering topic that might inspire a project. The mission of Intermediate North’s Science Fair is that students use different skills and procedures to explore varying fields of science and engineering, and put those skills on display. As usual, the field of participants did not disappoint.
“We are extremely proud of the students for completing their science projects and showcasing their work,” said eighth-grade science teacher Kristin Renkin. “Our hope for students with this experience is that it sparks an interest in the field of science or engineering.”
Judges for the Science Fair included district Director of 6-12 Curriculum Adrienne Gold; High School North Principal Ed Keller; Intermediate North seventh-grade science teacher Robyn Gudzak; Intermediate North special education teacher Meredith Rizzo; and community liaison Gino Sciorilli. Supervisor Debbie Schwartz and Assistant Superintendent Pat Thomas served as special guests. Congratulations to the students who placed, listed below:
