The Kohler Elementary School Science Fair on May 17th, was an exciting day with 151 students participating and 117 displays. Children from Kindergarten through Grade 5 selected either an experiment, demonstration/description, or collection for entry and this year turned out to be another great representation of bright minds and strong work ethic.
The judging panel this year included: Dr. Mary Eldridge’s Upper Level Science class students, Mrs. Greene, Mr. Lautenschlager, Mrs. Beyersdorf, and Mrs. La Duke. Students were awarded either a blue, red, or white ribbon based upon the point values earned on their scientific knowledge and display.
Best of Class winners included: Kindergarten-Damien Gumm, Grade 1- Eli Horne, Grade 2-Claire Gajewski and Mickey Corneilsen, Grade 3-Kaolin Garrels and Oscar Gumm, Grade 4-Fynley Bouck and Jelena Chang, and Grade 5-Turk Morehouse.
