CUMBERLAND — On Feb. 16, Greely High School hosted its famous science fair. Held annually, the science fair is an event for which freshmen start preparing in September. Students work exceptionally hard to present a wide range of science topics that appeal to their interests. This year’s projects ranged from testing the relative strength of wood glue to the photosynthesis of different colored seaweed in multiple lighting scenarios.
Students each created poster boards that were set up in the gym. They then presented their experiments to a series of three judges, all members of the community, who scored their projects on a range of elements.
The science fair was open to the community for a night time showing and many community members were eager to see what students studied this year.
After the judges’ scores were tallied, the top 30 freshmen were invited to the state competition which will be held on March 24 at Jackson Labs in Bar Harbor. A special congratulations to our winners Emily Follett, Meagan Currie and Ciara Hayes, who rounded out the top three along with the 26 honorable mentions. We wish all those who are continuing on to states the best of luck.
