Who doesn’t love a good old science fair? The Synopsys sponsored science fair is an elite event that is selective about its participants and rigorously enforces student diligence, safety, and intricate paperwork. In doing so, the Synopsys Science Fair gives its participants a real glimpse into what being an actual researcher requires. The 49ers STEM Leadership Institute had about twenty groups participate this year, and we are thrilled to announce that many of our students won awards in a variety of categories. One of our 7th grade students even took home first prize in her category for running a clinical study regarding memory, mood, and anxiety in middle school students, and the grand prize overall for her grade level. She and her project will be continuing on to the State Science Fair in Los Angeles in May.
Update: Our student who attended the State Science Fair in Los Angeles won Honorable Mention for her study in cognitive science. Congratulations!
