Serenity Engle (center with glasses) reacts to winning the High Plains Regional Science Fair.

Serenity Engle competed in her second year at the High Plains Regional Science Fair held on the campus of the School of Mines and took first place overall.  Serenity’s project; Developing Ferro-Fluids, is project based on liquid magnet production, these ferro fluids can be used in a variety of products.  Serenity first presented this project at last year’s science fair, and continued to develop the process again this year in her second year of science fair class.

Serenity is the first student from Hot Springs to become the overall winner of the High Plains Regional Science Fair.  She will now have the opportunity to participate at the international fair in Phoenix, Arizona.

The international fair will run from May 12 through 15.  She will have many opportunities to see other projects not only from the United States but other countries as well, as 80 other countries will be represented at this fair.  Serenity will have a very busy last week of school. She will graduate on the May 11 and leave for the fair that same day.

This a tremendous honor for someone who truly deserves this recognition.  Serenity is a dedicated science kid, and if you want to use the word nerd you can, in Serenity’s case it means doing the hard work to achieve a goal. 

The dedication she put into this project can only be measured by her reaction when the overall winner was announced and by the effort, she puts into not only her project but will include the effort she puts into her other class work.

This was the largest regional science fair to date as over 200 projects were presented at this year’s senior division fair.  The international fair will feature over 1,500 projects from around the world. Serenity plans to attend  SDSMT after graduation.  Ranked as a top 10 American school, with her drive and desire I firmly believe she will be very successful.
