Elliot Stead’s project, “Developing an Environmental Sensor, Designing, and Building a Sounding Rocket to Contain It,” earned him first prize at a regional science fair. As a result, he will be heading to the state fair to compete, representing Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School (MVRHS).

Junior students Elliot Stead and Jacksun Engler proudly represented MVRHS at the Massachusetts Region V Science and Engineering Fair, which took place at Bridgewater State University on March 2nd. Region V is a significant educational region in Massachusetts, covering schools in 75 cities and towns, including prominent locations such as Brockton, Newton, Quincy, and Weymouth, as well as smaller towns like Weston, Provincetown, Natick, Plymouth, and Easton.

Stead’s project, which focuses on creating an environmental sensor and designing a sounding rocket to house it, stood out among the competition and earned him first place at the fair. This accomplishment has secured his spot at the Massachusetts State Science and Engineering Fair, scheduled to take place at Gillette Stadium in April.
