13 HHCS Students Advancing Past District Science Fair

district science fairFebruary 11th, 2019 – After an impressive showing, 13 students are moving on to the next level of state science fair competition. 59 total students created projects for the District Science Fair.

 

49 judges evaluated science projects. Judges included HHCS administration, staff members, and teachers. Huber Heights government officials, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base personnel, and Vectren employees also served as judges.

 

Grading criteria for the District Science Fair included students demonstrating knowledge in the four areas of knowledge achieved, effective use of scientific method, clarity of expression, and originality and creativity. Students were also evaluated on the display of their project board, the quality of their report, and the quality of a student’s oral presentation of their project. Projects were placed either in “good,” “excellent,” or “superior” categories.

 

Students displayed quite a bit of creativity when coming up with topics for their science projects. They ranged from video games affecting blood pressure, tackling the five second rule myth, and the science behind afterimages.

 

District Science Fair organizer Shalen Back, a teacher on special assignment in the district’s Curriculum & Instruction department, was impressed with the students’ creativity. “It was amazing to see the projects that our students are capable of producing,” said Back. “The students beamed with excitement as they presented an understanding of the scientific method and gained familiarity with problem-solving and investigative exportation, which is so critical for future endeavors.”
