Congratulations to all the sixth grade students who competed in the regional science competitions yesterday at ASU! With over 120 projects in the middle school science fair, we're overjoyed that our own Lennon won an honorable mention in her category and may have the opportunity to advance to state competition. Congratulations also go to Lindsay and Caroline for their Student Academy presentation on barometric pressure and weather, as well as Emiley for her presentation for Student Academy on watering plants with alternatives to tap water. These three ladies will present at the state Student Academy competition in March. Kudos to everyone who participated! You represented BRS well!
