South Routt science fair
South Routt Elementary School third-, fourth- and fifth-graders recently competed in a science fair at the school.
South Routt Elementary School fifth-grader Chandler Cruson was crowned Grand Champion of the school's recent science fair for third-, fourth- and fifth-graders. Chandler's project detailed the many variations of crystals, including some he grew himself.
Participating students were required to use the scientific method, and they were encouraged to choose topics that interested them. Project areas could include life science, earth science and physical science. The displays ran the gamut from planet models to growing plants in different soils to electricity demonstrations and from magnetism to hover crafts for future travel.
Third grade winners were: first place, Lance Bryant; second place, Schuyler Carlson; and third place, Garrett Redmond. Fourth grade winners were: first place, Rion Wisecup; second place, Ivan Perez; and third place, Karissa Harves. Fifth grade winners were: first place, Lucy Carlson; second place (tie), Ben Bratton and Garrett Hurst-Poteet; and third place, Tristan Paxton.
