Fillmore Central's District Science Fair


Fri, Jan 15th, 2010
Posted in Education

The Fillmore Central District Science Fair was held on Tuesday, January 12th. The students presented their final projects to an array of local judges. This process started back in September where the students wrote down three topics they were interested in. Topics ranged from sports, food, the stars, pets, along with many others. From their topics the students developed questions with which they could complete an experiment. They then presented their possible ideas to see which would be the most feasible to complete an experimental design. The students then had checkpoints through the semester until the district fair. These check points included the completion of their procedure, experiment, data analysis and finally their display. At the district science fair, the students are able to communicate the procedure they followed to complete the experiment and explain their findings to their judges. The judging process took place during school. The students were to present their information to two judges. They were scored on clarity, scientific thought, thoroughness, skill and creativity. The judges meet with each students and asked various questions pertaining to each individual project. The public viewing, of the projects, followed the judging on Tuesday evening from 3:30-5:30. There was a nice turn out of a number of community members.



The following participants received special award recognition: 8th graders-Sarah Reicks, Danielle Zinsmaster, Monty Holm, and Tara McGinley, 7th graders- Sara Schultz, Morgan Malley, Leah Scheevel, and Tyler Christensen, 6th graders-Gabrielle Shupe, Lexie Dols, Alex Lange, and Caitlyn Walsh. The highest award is the Christopher Bishop Award. The Christopher Bishop Award was started ten years ago in honor of a Fillmore Central Middle School student who lost his battle with cancer. Ms. Bestor, a former teacher, started this award in his honor and we were extremely pleased to continue this tradition. This year's recipient of the Christopher Bishop Award was Nicholas Powell and 8th grade student whose project asked the question, "At what point of a pitch is it at its fastest?"



The Fillmore Central District Science Fair offered a great day of science! We would like to thank the following judges for taking time to share their expertise with our students: Jim Shupe, LeeAnn Howard, Laverne Paulson, Nate Mandelko, Jeff Weiss, Matt Benson, Jerry Tesmer, Mike McGarvey, Leslie Christensen, David Harrison, .....
