A local student has won an award at the Quinte Regional Science and Technology Fair
Ares Worsley of Bird’s Creek Public School has been awarded Best in Grade 4 across the region for his Free Fall Balloon project. Worsley charted how quickly balloons of different sizes fell and how their size affected their fall. You can check out Worsley’s project here.
The Fair was virtual this year due to COVID-19 restrictions. Management says while there were drawbacks because students were not allowed to meet, Co-chair of QRSTF Scott Berry says that students continued to impress this year.
Finalists to compete at the Canada-wide fair include a study about the increased risk of concussion on a dehydrated brain, a look into how students learn best, and a projecting looking into how mental health has been affected by the pandemic. HPEDSB students Hay Solomon, Nina Graciano, Luisa McGilly, Taguen Tsokos and Emma Cribby will be representing the region at the national level.
