CHS takes home seven first-place awards and eight special awards
Camas High School showed that science is tops with a successful finish at the Washington State Science and Engineering Fair Saturday, March 31.
There were 540 projects entered in this year’s fair.
The Camas School District was represented with one project from Dorothy Fox Elementary and 15 from Camas High School. Nine parents accompanied their students to the fair.
According to advisor Ron Wright, a parent new to the science fair commented, “This feels like a ‘Big Bang’ convention. It is so refreshing to hear this techno-nerdy humor from all of these kids. I am so happy mine is here and I wish more parents would bring theirs.”
High points of the convention included fifth-grader Emily Sheppard placing first with her project “Elevation and Temperature.”
CHS also had a good showing with seven first-place, three second-place and four third-place awards, and eight special awards.
According to Wright, only one other high school had more project awards than CHS.
