Congratulations to the 6th grade students who competed in the Los Angeles County Science Fair on March 27th at the Pasadena Convention Center: So-Jung An, Kiera Bennett, Cameron Feldmar, Julian Ha, Natalie Jefferson, Zoe Jespersgaard, Mira Kaplan, Laine Katz-Vano, Ford Mc Dill, Emilie Moore, and George Percival.
So-Jung An won First Place in the Materials Science Division with her project, “Playing with Pencils.” So-Jung’s work was awarded the Most Outstanding Project by the American Materials Society. George Percival earned an Honorable Mention in the Biochemistry Division for his project, “To Stain or Not to Stain.”
So-Jung and her project were invited to compete in the California State Science Fair held this week at the California Science Center in Los Angeles. Congratulations again to So-Jun, who came in 3rd place after two days of rigorous competition. So-Jun’s amazing project, “Playing with Pencils”, fascinated the judges in the Material Science category.
So-Jung is the second student from Walter Reed to compete at the state level. Next month So-Jung will compete in the Broadcom Masters Engineering and Science Fair. Good luck!
