Throughout the day last Friday, staff, students and the public slowly perused 58 science projects ringing the upper level of the Longhorn Gym at Chase County Schools.
This is the third year teacher Kim Wilson’s ninth grade physical science students made science projects. It’s the second year the projects have been displayed for the public’s enjoyment.
There was a wide range of topics shown. How to best swing a bat, does cigarette smoke affect plants, does the grain of a bullet affect its ability to penetrate steel, what types of basketball shoes give the highest lift—these were just a few of the topics students studied.
The students were asked to keep a journal concerning their experiments. Those journals were also on display.
Wilson said the top 15 winners have the opportunity to go on to the NJAS competition in North Platte March 24. Those winners were, in order:
Ashlin Bussell, Andrea Hogsett, Liz Tomky, Cassie Burpo, Bridget Langin, Aleida Marquez, Garret Thompson, Leslie Acosta, Dan Sullivan, Abby Lopez, Korey Krutsinger, Anna Bauerle, Luis Rodriguez, Curtis Laird and Derek Schilke.
