The Central High School Science Fair was held in the gym on Friday, March 4. There were 282 entries from students in seventh – twelfth grade. Students studied the steps of the scientific method; how to conduct scientific research and summarize information; how to measure, report and analyze scientific data; and how to create scientific models.
The students presented their projects to their classmates for a portion of their project grade, and then judges came in after school to award first, second and third places based on grade level and project type. Parents and the student body were able to view all the projects during the Science Fair.
Special thank you to the Coosa County Sheriff’s Office and the Town of Rockford for allowing us to borrow their tables. Also thank you to our science teachers who made this event possible, Mrs. Thompson, Mr. Mitchell and Mrs. White under the direction of our science coach, Mrs. Wood.
