You could learn just about anything at the annual Chase County Schools science fair, held last Friday at the school.
Ten students and their projects will continue on to the Regional Science Fair competition in North Platte March 27.
In order of ranking, from first place to 10th place, they are:
Jessica Hartman, junior—Get the Tough Stain Out;
Darin Knobbe, junior—Magnetizing Voltage;
Ryan Moline, junior—Harnessing Static Electricity;
Mindy Castle, junior—Strength in Numbers;
Cade Francis, freshman—Eat Like a Bird;
Travis Luhrs, junior—Ice Ice Baby;
Paige Spady, junior—An Enzyme’s Time to Shine;
MaKenna Ketter, junior—Do You Hear What I Hear?;
Kadyn Milner, freshman—Recycling at My Home;
Makenna Wallin, junior—Denaturation Sensation.
The ninth grade students were given recycling and reducing as a topic.
“Some had a hard time getting ideas,” said teacher Kim Wilson. But, there were topics such as “Recycling Plastic Bags” by Sarah Allen, “Reusing Glass Jars” by Taylin McNair, “The Box” by Vianey Marquez and “Recycling and Reusing T-Shirts” by Jasmine Dannar.
Olders students chose subjects such as “Denaturation Sensation” by Makenna Wallin, grade 11, and “Ice Ice Baby” by Travis Luhrs, grade 11.
