Students Participate in Virtual Science Fair

Three students represented Ontario Middle School in the Mohican District Science Day competition. In order to qualify at the district level students need to earn a Superior rating at their local school science fair. Usually the event is held at Ashland University, however, under the circumstances of COVID-19, students were able to participate virtually this year.

Emma Henderson earned a SUPERIOR rating with her project titled "Lead in our Environment? That's Heavy!". Emma also earned the Michael R. Hudson Young Scientist Award. This $50.00 award is given to two students who have the best projects in grades 5-8. She also has the chance to advance to the state competition which will be held virtually. 

Blake Dewees and Grace Them also participated in the virtual science fair, both earning EXCELLENT ratings. Blake's project was titled "Heart Rate and Blood Pressure 101". Grace's project was titled "Does Holding a Pet Lower your Blood Pressure?".   

Thanks for representing Ontario Middle School exceptionally well!
