Congratulations to all of our participants and winners of our 24th annual Science Fair here at Will Rogers! All K-5 students were invited to complete a project in one of three categories: experiment, engineering, or research. All projects were scored on process, display, creativity, and live presentation. Our judges included Bret Klopfenstein, VUSD Science Specialist; Steve Hongola, Senior Ecologist from Rincon Consulting Inc.; and Judy Anderson, Will Rogers' part-time science teacher. There was tough competition this year as so many of the projects were truly amazing, well thought out, creative, and explained well. Here is a list of winners for the 2016 Science Fair:
