ESJ Science Fair Winners
Students in the Honors Science Seminar presented their science projects to judges at the School Science Fair on January 21-23 in the Berg Gallery of the Munnerlyn Center.
“The judges were impressed with the students’ creativity, scientific thinking and critical thinking,” said Marion Zeiner, Director of Scientific Research. “The projects were complex, novel and pertinent to the problems that face society today.”
Based and the extraordinary quality of the projects, the judges chose two first place winners in both the biological sciences and the physical sciences.
Ashton Body and Sally Barksdale both were first place winners in biology, and Julia Kagiliery and Jordan Harrow were first place winners in the physical sciences.
All members of the Honors Science Seminar will present their projects at the Northeast Florida Regional Science Fair February 9-11.
