On Dec. 15, I had the privilege to be a judge for the Austin Middle School Seventh Grade Science Fair. First, I was impressed with the quality of the student presentations. Second, not only were the posters well organized in describing the hypotheses, processes, data collected and conclusions, the students were well-versed in making their oral presentations, speaking clearly and concisely describing their projects.
Emily Shotwell, the seventh- and eighth-grade science teacher, did an excellent job in preparing students for the science fair. These students represent our future scientists, doctors, nurses, engineers and other disciplines. With the guidance and instruction they are receiving at this level of schooling, our future appears to be well in hand.
Well done Ms. Shotwell! And congratulations to the students who participated in this science fair. Good job!
