Six Effingham Christian students competed in the Savannah Ogeechee Regional Science and Engineering Fair in February.
Two of those students, Logan Flanders and Quinn Bodie won in the Botany category and will advance to the Georgia Science and Engineering Fair.
The Savannah Ogeechee Regional Science and Engineering Fair (SORSEF) presents an opportunity for middle and high school students to demonstrate an understanding of research and experimentation in their area of choice. These students competed against 225 students from 11 counties.
The Georgia Science and Engineering Fair will be held in April at the University of Georgia. Students who participate in this fair learn how to isolate important problems and how to attack and hopefully solve problems all within the framework of organized, logical thought and study.
The student’s work is judged by professional scientists, who look not only for an attractive functional presentation and for the basic understanding the students have of their research, but more importantly, for the contribution the work has made to uncovering new ideas or information.
Effingham Christian School provides a distinctively classical and Christ centered education and is located at 226 Goshen Rd., Rincon. For more information you can visit their Web site at www.effinghamchristian.org.
