On Thursday, March 14th, Luseland school held a science fair featuring thirty three projects with kids from grades 7-9.
Starting in November the kids started planning projects they could present at the school science fair. Projects varying from inventions, experiments, and studies were conducted; the kids from grades 7-9 worked months on their science fair projects and it paid off.
At the science fair a total of thirty three projects were displayed with forty three kids partaking in the fun! Fifteen of those projects will be moving onto the regional science fair which is to be held in Wilkie on March 21st. The winners in Wilkie will move onto the Canada-Wide Science Fair which will be held in Fredericton, New Brunswick in May.
Luseland has sent students onto the Canada-Wide Science Fair before and hopes to have the chance to do so again. It is a great experience to take part in.
The first place overall winner was Trinity Walford, a grade 9 student, with her project called “Transpiration”. She performed and experiment on flowers testing the effect different liquids take on the plant. The liquids included many of the drinks we humans consume in our day-to-day life. Drinks such as Red Bull and Coke killed the flowers where as Orange Juice and Milk did not have such profound effects.
Second place winner was Hannah Wurz, a grade 8 student, and her study called “Coffee Catastrophe”. She studied the effect plastic keurig cups have on the environment and how using coffee grounds in a machine was much more beneficial to the environment.
Those are only two of the creative, interesting projects we saw in Luseland and there will be many more to see in Wilkie.
Unity, Macklin, Luseland, and Wilkie will have students participating in the regional science fair event.
Around the province, not often do schools do science fairs anymore. It gives students an opportunity to venture further into the world of science and learn more about a topic that interests them.
