On April 7th and 8th, two of our outstanding middle school students participated in AzSEF, the state science and engineering fair, in Phoenix. Sophia Greenhill (8th) and Nick Darling (6th) spent an afternoon defending their science fair projects before the state science fair judges in Phoenix, and both came away with top awards.
Sophia Greenhill received second place in the state for her project “Lights Out” in the Behavioral and Social Sciences category. In addition, she received the Office of Naval Research: Naval Science Award.
Nick Darling received the Arizona State University Walton Sustainability Solutions Award for his project “How Much is That Cup of Coffee Worth to You?” in the Environmental Sciences category. This award also came with a $300 monetary award.
Both of these science scholars are also recipients of the Broadcom MASTERS award nomination. Congratulations to both Sophia and Nick!
