Science Fair

Almost 70 students competed at this year's regional science fair in Scottsbluff March 5. Two Chadron Middle School students earned recognition at the competition. 

Almost 70 students from five schools across the Panhandle shared more than 50 science projects March 5 in Scottsbluff. The projects topics at the fourth annual Nebraska Panhandle Area Health Education center and Nebraska Junior Academy of Science Combined Regional Science Fair ranged from “Does Manure Help Plants Grow?” and “Teens & Screens” to “Shake Dogs.”

Students were judged on the following criteria: Scientific method, communication skills and personal growth.

Participants competed to earn a trip to Lincoln in April for the State NJAS competition and, for eighth and ninth graders only, a trip to UNMC in Omaha in June.
