DHS Science Fair 2017

Competition and winners announced on February 21, 2017

Congratulations to FIRST PLACE WINNER, Hannah Gravante

Hannah's project entitled "The Science Behind Making Ice Cream" questioned how the Law of Thermodynamics allows us to make delicious food and de-ice our roads in the winter. Hannah will participate in the Coriell Science Fair in March. Good luck, Hannah!

Nice job, SECOND PLACE WINNER, Justin Ma

Justin's project entitled "How Does Heat Affect Proteins?" investigated the denaturing of proteins during the process of cooking (hair, milk and eggs). Justin certainly has many ideas for continuing his research using other techniques like changing pH. Justin will be showing off his work at Coriell Science Fair as well. Break a leg, Justin!
