Students in grades 3 through 8 recently gathered at Purdue University North Central to participate in the PNC Delta Sigma science club science fair.
The Science Fair was intended to encourage scientific creativity, to engage young students in enlightening projects and to give them an opportunity to interact with students of similar interests to one another and with faculty from the PNC College of Science.
Many of the PNC students who are Delta Sigma members believe that participating in science fairs was instrumental in fostering an interest in science and ultimately choosing to embark on a path to a science degree.
The Science Fair results are:
Third and fourth grade winners: Lilith Rengstorf, Northview Elementary, Valparaiso; Violet Lukich, Eads Elementary, Munster; Hannah Rigg, Kaleigh Ciesielski, & Mackenzie Major, Central Elementary, Valparaiso.
Fifth & sixth grade winners: Aidan Kraemer, Westville Elementary, Westville; Mason Kraemer, Westville Elementary, Westville; Hailey Rigg, Ben Franklin Middle School, Valparaiso.
Seventh & eighth grade winners: Mya Methner and classmates from the Renaissance Academy, La Porte.
