Family, friends, faculty and judges were wowed by the scope, sophistication and creativity of the exhibits presented at Tuesday’s Seventh Annual High School Science Fair. All students in Grades 7 and 8 and some in 9 and 10 participated in the event, which showcased their research on topics ranging from bacteria to tarantulas.
Participants and their projects were evaluated by an impressive panel of volunteer judges comprised of Hebrew Academy parents, other family members and alumni. Students with the highest-ranking projects will present their work at the Hydro Quebec Regional Science Fair in March, alongside other high-school winners from Montreal.
