Please ask your student about their choices for next year and return the forms to the front office by Friday, May 11th.

Carrington Sydes and Caroline Cubas Recognized by the Onslow County School's Board of Education!

On May 1st the Board of Education for the Onslow County School District recognized the achievements of two Trexler students. Their accomplishments are truly outstanding! Please read below for information that summarizes their work.


The Onslow County Schools Science and Engineering Fair celebrates original ideas in the fields of Science & Engineering. Students compete at different levels beginning at the school level, and potentially ending at the international level depending on the division. Two students, Carrington Sydes and Caroline Cubas from Trexler Middle School, have taken this journey and are still rising to the top. Their project, STOP! Danger Zone!, which utilized motion sensors to alert bus riders to oncoming vehicles while at the bus stop, won at the school level, district level and placed 2nd at both the Southeast Regional Science and Engineering Fair held at UNCW as well as the 31st Annual North Carolina State Science and Engineering Fair (NCSEF) on March 24, 2018.


This second-place win in the Junior Division earned them a national bid to the Broadcom Masters (Math, Applied Science, Technology and Engineering for Rising Stars). This competition is sponsored by the Society for Science & the Public, which inspires and recognizes our nation's young scientists, engineers, and innovators. Their project is now one of 3500 projects from across the nation that has received this opportunity. In September 2018, 300 semi-finalists will be announced and in October, 30 finalists will be selected to win an all-expense paid trip to the national competition held in Washington DC. Good luck to Carrington and Caroline as they wait to hear if they have been selected!
