The fifth and sixth graders at Woodhull Intermediate School will never be outdone by those at any other school anywhere. This year’s science fair proved it.
Woodhull students developed some spectacular projects that ran the gamut of possibilities. Judging the work was no easy task. Huntington’s STEM Chairperson Jill Johanson met with each youngster and reviewed their respective project, asking questions and clarifying findings.
The two top projects on each grade level will advance to the Brookhaven National Lab’s annual elementary science fair set for May.
“We are very proud and extremely pleased with what our students developed for this year’s fair,” Woodhull Principal Traci Roethel said. “The work was impressive and of very high quality.”
First, second and third place awards were presented on each of Woodhull’s two grade levels. Honorable mention recognition was bestowed on one student in each class in the building.
Fifth grade honorees include:
1st place: Ariana James
2nd place: Lily Tierney
3rd place: Riley Murtagh
Sixth grade honorees include:
1st place: Lauren Bonn
2nd place: Leigh Hepworth
3rd place: James McCormack
