Today, East Coventry Elementary fourth, fifth and sixth grade students who elected to do so, participated in the Science Research Competition. These young scientists took on a variety of dilemmas and applied the scientific method to explore and problem solve.
Along with esteemed area scientists, six students from the high school also participated in judging the projects and interviewing the contestants. Annie Arditi, Troy Wagner, Sam Diehl, Zeb Smith, Liam Kowalski, and Allisan Hawk were students on the East Coventry panel. Other high school students are volunteering at upcoming science fairs. The criteria gives elementary students many opportunities to earn points on their projects in nine categories including the research design, data collection and data analysis.
