DHS Science Fair Winners Announced!

Competition took place on February 23, 2016

Congratulations to FIRST PLACE WINNER, Sydney Coldren

Sydney's project entitled "Probiotics or Nobiotics" questioned the ability of microorganisms to thrive in an acidic environment like the stomach. Great job, Sydney! Her love of microbiology will serve her well in college and career.

JOB WELL DONE, SECOND PLACE WINNER, KATIE FLYNN

Katie's project entitled "Gumcentration" questioned whether the act of chewing gum gave the user better speed and accuracy during tests requiring concentration. The research Katie did on the military's use of gum for soldiers to maintain focus was intriguing.

What's next for our aspiring scientists?

The young ladies are invited to the Coriell Science Fair on March 19th at the Camden County Community College in Blackwood, NJ. Those who place at Coriell may move on to the Delaware Valley Regional Science Fair, March 30th-31st. Good luck ladies!
