The regional state science fair was held on February seventeenth at the Exploration Place in Wichita, Kansas. David Moreland, Megan Giger, Dallas Anderson, Sara Wilson, Slade Wiley, and Taylor McLain were State qualifiers.
David’s project was ‘Soil Type Vs. Yield’. He was very excited and surprised to be a state qualifier and made his project because “it’s a real life problem”, David said. He said he will try his best but probably will not come out on top at state.
Megan Giger tested the decay on teeth when you are an avid pop drinker. She hopes she does well at state ,but does not believe she will do well at state.
Slade Wiley was one of the two freshman state qualifiers. Slade’s project was over lemon juice and how the juice conducted with other materials. He won 1st in the plant science category and has high hopes to do well at state.
Taylor McLain, the other freshman, also won his category of physical energy with his project Electromagnetic Train. He was very nervous going into this contest, especially with speaking to the judges.
Dallas Anderson and Sarah Wilson partnered up for the project “Speed of a Muon”. There problem was finding the speed of a decayed cosmic ray. Dallas believes they will get into the top five at state. The hardest problem in endeavoring the goal was equipment issues.
