Beckley-Stratton students recently participated in a school science fair where students gained first-hand experience with real-world science experiments. The projects were to be entered individually or of a team with 2-3 students. Students were not allowed to bring materials to demonstrate their experiments; however, they were able to place 3D displays in front of their boards. Each was also judged on their board presentation and experiment. An abstract was also to be included with the project.

Erika Hilliard, an 8th grader, did her science fair project on how quickly athletes can lose fluid. She conducted her experiment by weighing a few young athletes before and after sports practices to see if they lost any pounds. “I wanted to help student athletes realize the importance of staying hydrated.”

Ms. Borck, 7th grade science teacher, said that her advice to students doing the science fair would be to “be confident! You were the ones to decide on a plan, run the experiment, gather data, show what that data meant, and discuss what you have concluded after it had all fallen into place; even an unsuccessful experiment has learning opportunities to reevaluate what you could do differently next time” Ms. Borck stated. She went on to say that “almost everything science based did not run 100% smoothly the first time” and urges students not to fret if something doesn’t happen exactly as they want to.

Congratulations to all the students who placed at the school science fair level. Those who placed 1st at the school level moved onto the Raleigh County Science Fair that was held at Woodrow Wilson High School on January 6, 2018. Beckley-Stratton did an incredible job with their projects and all who attended the county fair placed within their divisions.
