During the annual Health Science Meet at North Platte Community College March 21, Chase County Schools (CCS) students took four of the top five positions.
Placing were Suzy Kasselman, second with “Robots and Computers in the Workplace;” Kymberli Rowley in third with “Treatment for Hair Growth;” Indy Smith in fourth with “Golf Balls, Inexpensive and Cheap;” and Valeria Cervantes in fifth with “Color That Attracts the Eye Fastest.”
The students will attend the April 19 State NJAS (Nebraska Junior Academy Science) fair in Lincoln at Lincoln Wesleyan.
The science fair is an opportunity for students to use many different skills to produce a display showing the progress of their project, write a short research report with a bibliography, give a brief presentation explaining their project and answer questions following their presentation.
The projects were to be either informative or experimental in nature and the scientific method must have been followed.
The CCS students’ teacher is Kim Wilson.
There were 110 projects submitted from schools such as CCS, Garden County, Gothenburg, Kearney Catholic, Ogallala and St. Patrick’s in North Platte and McCook.
