Hebrew Academy High School’s 6th Annual Science Fair took place on Monday, December 15 in the Moritz Hasen Gymnasium. From presentations featuring germs and clouds, to ones that included a live cricket and a roller coaster, students in Grades 7 and 8 and a number of studnets in Grades 9 and 10 wowed visitors and judges alike with their creativity and scientific knowledge. It was a night of learning and discovery for the many family and friends who came out to support our budding scientists. Visitors learned about the nervous system, the best way to memorize a text, the quickest way to make ice and the genetics of fingerprinting, to name but a few of the projects that ranged from the fields of engineering to molecular biology.Students presented their projects to a panel of judges made up of volunteer teachers, doctors, dentists and researchers. Congratulations to all participants for your outstanding submissions and Mazel Tov to the following Science Fair winners:
