A while back, I was lucky enough to take part in Glasgow Middle School’s science fair. Unknown to me, this science fair had a microbiology section that happened to need a few judges to help out. So with the help of Ms. Rachel Joyce of the Christner Lab, we teamed up to help out and judge the microbiology section.
The students were judged on their presentation skills, poster design, scientific knowledge, ability to answer questions, and overall project design. It was a great time that had tons of awesome posters! It was fun to see all the different topics and learn from the 6th-8th grade students about what they found to be awesome about microbiology!
First through third place were as follows:
1) Erin Nauman “What’s the most effective cleaning method for a toothbrush?”
2) Jenny Li “What ache medication affects bacteria growth the most?”
3) Priya Gilman “Homemade Yogurt”
Though we ranked the top three, I have to say I was impressed with them all and wanted to share the rest with you as well, so enjoy!
Signing off for now,
