Seventh- and eighth- grade students at Holy Family School in Poland participated in a science fair Jan. 31.

The finished projects had to include a description of the purpose of the experiment, a hypothesis about what the students thought they would find during their experiments, an abstract, list of materials, detailed list of procedures during the experiment, data and graph showing information gathered, a conclusion, and any references that might have been used in the project.

Many topics were discussed by students. Among them were experiments dealing with which fruit juice contains the most vitamin C, egg drop tests, finding out which kinds of candles burned the longest, how fungus develops on different surfaces, and more.

Judges, from Youngstown State University, different businesses in the community, and educators, went from project to project during the school day and listened to a presentation given by the students on their experiments.

Using the scores calculated by the judges, Paul Diorio earned first place, while Christopher Lewis and Merideth Lee earned Best of Show. There were also many second-place and honorable mention projects for the science fair this year.
