7th Annual K-5 Science and Engineering Fair Hosted by GCSU

The 7th Annual Science and Engineering Fair at Georgia College & State University brought together over 400 students from around Georgia, marking the largest group of elementary students to participate in the event since its inception six years prior. Representing a hundred school districts, the judges found it challenging to select winners among the numerous outstanding projects on display.

John Trombley, a Senior Chemistry Lecturer at GCSU and one of the judges at the fair, mentioned the difficulty of choosing between the impressive projects presented by the bright students. He noted that when faced with two, three, or four exceptional projects, it becomes a daunting task to determine which one stands out slightly more than the others.

Catrena Lisse, the Fair Director and director of GCSU’s Science Education Center, emphasized the importance of nurturing children’s curiosity and fostering their self-confidence through events like the Science and Engineering Fair. Lisse highlighted the significance of supporting and encouraging young minds, as they represent the future scientists, doctors, and GBI agents who will play crucial roles in finding cures for diseases and advancing various fields.

Approximately 70 projects were submitted by students from middle Georgia, showcasing their creativity, innovation, and scientific curiosity. The fair provided a platform for students to display their talents and interests in science and engineering, inspiring them to pursue careers in these fields and make meaningful contributions to society in the future.
