Asandro Otero

Grade:
4
Teacher:
Mrs. Taisha March

The purpose of this project is to identify the best color for reading letters from a distance. Humans can see a range of colors and often have to be able to clearly identify letters to read from a distance. I am trying to identify the easiest color to see. This will help to make sure everyone can read clearly in situations such as a student reading a white board.

How does growing space affect the height of a Helinathus annuus plant?

Plant Sciences
Miles Ball David Bruce Oakley

Grade:
10
Teacher:
Dr. Michael Frank

"Our project was to see and evaluate the factors that could affect the height of plants. In our experiment, it is for the Helianthus annuus plant which is a much bigger plant that requires a bigger growing space. The results of the project gave us answers and showed us that growing space does play a role in a plant's height. The reason this is an important experiment is that it can lead others to learn from it possibly and have them develop other questions for plants. However for us personally we wanted to see if growing space was really an important factor in a plant's height/development."

Lysol Spray vs Lysol Wipes Starring Money

Health and Wellness
Elle Lu Thompson

Grade:
7
Teacher:
Mrs. Alexandria Vaughn

"Project Description: What is your project about? My science fair project is about the money on germs and what the best way between Lysol Wipes and Lysol Spray is to disinfect those germs. I also wanted to identify the germs that remained on the money sources after I disinfected them. Why did you choose this project? I chose this project because money is an everyday item that is handled and I wanted to see the germs that were on the money sources. I also wanted to kill the germs on the money sources. I have always enjoyed learning more and more about germs. And, money is an item that everyone touches/uses frequently, which helped me choose this project. I studied germs before Covid which inspired me to try again and discover more. What was your result/overall conclusion? My conclusion is that none of the germs on the regular money sources grew so absolutely no germs grew on the disinfected money sources. This may be because of Covid, people are washing/sanitizing their hands way more often and then they touch the money sources when they use them. So, money is now cleaner than it was before Covid in comparison to my prior experiment. Why is your project important? My project is important because if the money sources are cleaner because of Covid this could mean that out of everything that has happened during Covid the money was affected for the good. This could also apply to other things in stores, restaurants, and many other places. "

Innovating Solar Panels to Remotely Send Solar Energy

Earth and Environmental Sciences
Juliet Iadevaia

Grade:
7
Teacher:
Mrs. Alexandria Vaughn

"Project Description: What is your project about? My project is about Innovating solar panels to remotely send solar energy. Why did you choose this project? When I first learned about the science fair, I knew I wanted to do my project on something that helps the environment, so I chose to do something on solar energy. What was your result/overall conclusion? My final conclusion was that there are experiments on remotely transferring solar energy by microwaves being conducted at this very moment, and with the right equipment we can use solar energy all over the planet! Why is your project important? My project is important because if/once scaled up we can reduce our ecological footprint, by using more solar energy all throughout the world. "

My Bunk Buddy

Engineering, Robotics, and Computer Science
Muren Noel Bilicic

Grade:

Teacher:
Mrs. Alexandria Vaughn

"Project Description: What is your project about? My project is about helping me sleep at night as well as just not having to get up at night with the help of a pulley storage system. Why did you choose this project? I chose this project because I knew that it would benefit me as well as other members of my friends and family. What was your result/overall conclusion? In the end my project was successful because it completed its necessary task and affected my sleep for the better. Why is your project important? My project is important because for me and others around me I know that it is difficult to climb out of a bunk bed at night and that it can either wake you up or possibly injure you. This creates a solution, so that you can store what you need in an easy access place as well as use the pre attached flashlight if you do need to get up. "
