Science Fair Results are In!

On February 12, Roy Bartels, Merv Dehning, Tamra Jackson, and Amy Timmerman combined their variety of professions to judge the high school science fair. Five months of preparation resulted in experiments dealing with sports drinks and weight training, ethanol vs. gasoline, and Mountain Dew's effect on a breathalyzer test. The 1st place project experimented with carbon monoxide emissions from vehicles.

Middle School Science Fair

Middle school students need to set up their projects in the small gym between 9AM and noon on Saturday, February 12th.  Students need: completed display board, two copies of completed final report, any items for the display (nothing living), and a card table.

An Education Beyond the Classroom Walls

The seventh grade students of Lincoln Lutheran had the opportunity to experience an outdoor classroom this week. We started our day at Spring Creek Prairie exploring God’s creation. During our hike students recorded observations. They will use these reflections as inspiration for future writing projects. Students collected data on types of plants and animal life while completing a quadrant study. They will use the information to calculate the populations of the plants and animals of the 808 acre prairie in math class this week.

High School Science Fair is Judged

After months of preparation, the High School Science Fair occurred Saturday, February 13. Out of the sixteen projects, six were awarded prizes and two were named as second round qualifications.

Ethan Bruggeman took first place with his project, "Does changing light affect a photovoltaic cell?" Chase Latham came in second with a project about heat, and Casey Blum received third for her project about equine estrous cycles and performance horses. In 4th place was Holly Atterbury with an Egg Drop Test. Jacob Rappa and Andrew Polk received honors as part of the top six. Second Round Qualifications included Kayleigh Hennington and Kory Kolholf.

All sixteen students have been working hard on these projects over the past months, and their creativity shows as their projects span everything from horses to sound to grapefruit. Each student will now compete at the Regional Science Fair on March 6.
