Over 60 Fort Riley Middle School students participated in the Wamego Regional Science Fair on Saturday, March 10th. Many students participated in the interview portion of the fair, answering questions about the scientific method and sharing their knowledge of the scientific concept studied within the project. Two students from FRMS, Logan Carroll (7th grade) and Lisanit Vega (8th grade) qualified for the Kansas State Science and Engineering Fair, which will be held in Wichita, KS.
Across the state, local science fairs were completed, usually before February, prior to the dates set forth by the regional fair in their area. The Kansas State Science and Engineering Fair is an ongoing annual project, occurring on April 6, 2018, in its eleventh year. Teachers and students across the state will be inspired to work toward an increased standard of excellence in science, math, engineering, and technology. The science fair will be judged and winners in each division will be chosen. The top three teams in Division III, Division II and in Division I will receive money. The first and second place winner in Division I will receive money and funding for the student to attend the International Science and Engineering Fair that is held in May, in different locations around the United States each year.
