On Friday, March 8, 66 students in grades one through four participated in the Palmyra Elementary Science Fair.
It was a busy day, full of experimentation and learning. BASF provided four judges for the day.
The judges were Chao Wang, Rebecca Adcox, Brian Cox and Adam Wardlow.
Nineteen of the projects were awarded a first-place ribbon (BLUE), 24 were awarded a second-place ribbon (RED), 16 were awarded third-place ribbon (WHITE), and seven were awarded a participation ribbon (GREEN).
A Science Expert for each grade level will be awarded at the school’s awards day in May.
