66 Students, 45 Projects, Countless Hours

Mrs. Lockwood’s High School Physical Science classes have been busy this fall creating Science & Engineering Fair projects. The students are very excited to show off their work, which will be on display in the 700 triangle through the end of the semester. The projects are currently being judged by teachers, administrators, and community members to determine which 5 projects will head to the Fulton County Fair held in February. Whether they go to the County Fair or not, these students deserve congratulations for their hard work!!
