The Georgia Science and Engineering Fair is the state’s ultimate venue for displaying the science and engineering research of Georgia’s middle and high school students. An invitation to compete at the Fair is the result of a string of achievements. All schools in the state are encouraged to provide or join a local science fair at which students can share their research skills. Meritorious projects from local fairs may then be invited to exhibit at one of the 22 regional fairs held throughout the state in January and February. Of the regional winners, only 650 are invited to compete in the state science fair in Athens.
Several students from our schools participated in the 64th Annual Georgia Science and Engineering Fair held March 29-31 at the University of Georgia in Athens. Those receiving awards at the state level were:
- Elisia Walter, Southside Middle School, 2nd Place Junior Division (Microbiology)
- Juliet Hu, Merry Acres Middle School, 2nd Place Junior Division (Social Sciences)
- Tellus Museum Award Winner – Aubrey Smith, Westover Comprehensive High School
- UGA Artificial Intelligence Institute Award – Junior Division – Juliette Hu, Merry Acres Middle School
- US Army Special Award in Physical Science – Calvin Moore, Westover Comprehensive High School
