Local Announcements: Winners of the CMS 2024 Science and Technology Fair

Chatham Middle School recently hosted its 2024 Science & Technology Fair, where students in grades six through eight showcased their projects in the CMS gym. Each grade had a winner, with Miles Schuster from 6th grade investigating the impact of outside temperature on solar panels, Jack Galvin from 7th grade exploring the energy levels of different fruits and vegetables, and Lucy Tassinari and Logan Van Wie from 8th grade testing different heat protectants.

Students were required to develop a hypothesis or technical problem and then utilize either the Scientific Method or Problem Solving Method to prove or disprove their theory or find a solution to their problem. Judging took place during the school day, with faculty members from the high school and middle school science and technology departments evaluating the projects. Classes also had the opportunity to view the projects as well.

The fair was open to the public in the evening, allowing parents and community members to see the students’ hard work. The winners were announced at the end of the event, with Jack Galvin, Miles Schuster, Lucy Tassinari, and Logan Van Wie being recognized for their outstanding projects. This event provided an opportunity for students to showcase their scientific and technical skills, fostering a love for STEM subjects at Chatham Middle School.

In conclusion, Chatham Middle School’s Science & Technology Fair was a resounding success as it provided students with an opportunity to demonstrate their skills in STEM subjects. Through this event, students were able to apply scientific principles and methods in developing their projects while also gaining recognition for their efforts. This will undoubtedly encourage more students to pursue careers in STEM fields in future years.
