science fair 2

More than 700 students traveled to Athens to compete in the 60th Annual Georgia Science and Engineering Fair.  Among those competing were three of Effingham’s own students: Bryce Blewett (ECMS), Tierney Hagan (ECMS), and Chris Mitchell (SEMS).  

Blewett received the NOAA-Gray’s Reef National Marine Sanctuary Award for his project “Gone Fishin’: Does atmospheric pressure affect fishing differently in rivers compared to ponds?” and Hagan received the University of Georgia Cellular Biology Award for her project, “Spicy Science: Which spice kills the most bacteria in cooking?”
