Congratulations To Our 2023 Science Fair Winners, Jack Bentley & Lauren Jones

After a two-year hiatus, we were able to gather students, judges, & parents for an in-person Science Fair event. The Science Fair is one way for our students to put Roger Bacon’s revolutionary philosophy into practice – bringing observation, experimentation, & mathematics into research.

Last Thursday (Jan 26th), we had over 80 students complete and showcase 44 different science projects, with posters lined all around the Fogarty & nerves anticipating the approach from judges. To all of you who participated in this year’s science fair – congratulations! Give yourselves a pat on the back. Thank you for your hard work & stay motivated for next year.

All projects that earned a superior rating (36-40) are eligible to move to the District Science Fair. Congratulations to the following groups for earning a superior rating.
