Science Fair Projects Advance to State Competition

Douglas County will be represented with 12 science fair projects in the Georgia Science and Engineering Fair in Athens March 31-April 2. These 12 projects were the result of hard work by 14 middle and high school students.

These 14 students and 71 other middle and high school students were chosen from their schools to enter projects in the 2016 Douglas County Middle and High School Science Fair on January 21. The projects had impressive titles such as “Using the Capillary Action Method to Test the Effects of Excessive Sodium” and comical titles such as “How Hot Is Your Dog?” All first and second place winners for the county, a total of 30 students, advanced to the West Georgia Regional Science and Engineering Fair at the University of West Georgia on February 12. The region coordinator selected projects with the best chance of excelling in their category to advance to the state competition.

The 14 students who will advance to the state competition are Maddy Harris and Kyle Robles from Mason Creek Middle School; Georgia Stinchcomb and Ella Stinchcomb from Chapel Hill Middle School; Alexandra Carpenter from Chapel Hill High School; Devika Dutt from Douglas County High School; Ethan Harrison, Sebastian Torres-Wilcken, Nana Zanlerigu, Nicholas Gorzynski, Christian Parker, Kenneth Thomas, Tyler Sargent, and Zacarrah Venning from Lithia Springs High School.
