Zabdiel Reyes received the United States Metric Association award for his project. Katie Martinez, Van Shawn Lewis and Elizabeth Moore garnered Honorable Mention awards.
Central School principal, Dr. Willie Miles praised the efforts of the students but said he was not surprised by the results. “We have great students at Central School. Our science teachers are dedicated and committed to leading students to high levels of achievement. This is what happens when the focus is on student achievement.” Science teacher Forrest Massey coordinated the MCCS student participation in the event.
Superintendent of Schools, Doug Brown, also added his congratulations to the students and teachers. “Our schools are focused on providing a rigorous and engaging education. The Science Fair results are indicative of what happens when a solid STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) curriculum is implemented. With quality instruction and support from parents, students can achieve great things. We are really proud of these young scholars and their teachers.”
