Immaculate Conception Middle School students participated in the 2013 school’s Science Fair. Project categories included: Earth Science, Life Science, Physical Science, and Mechanical Engineering. Six winners were chosen from among each grade level (6th-8th) followed by a Champion and Grand Champion winner. This year’s 2013 Grand Champion is 6th Grader Leanza Trevino who entered a project under the Physical Science category named “Are You Getting What You Pay For?” The project dealt with the effectiveness of brand name versus generic cosmetic foundations. The I.C.S. Champion is 7th Grader Sara Paola Guerra who submitted a Life Science project entitled “Lettuce Cleaning Methods” that compares different ways to best disinfect lettuce which may contain microorganisms. Mrs. M. Olivarez (Principal) and Mrs. Sonja S. Cortinas (Middle School Science Teacher) wish to thank the students for all of their hard work, dedication, and their effort towards excellence in education. We also wish to thank Ms. Matea Vasques (STC Educator), Ms. Analy Gundran (R.G.C. High School Science Educator), and Ms. Ida Alvarez (R.M.S. Science Educator) for giving their time and dedication to come and serve as judges for our fair. It was a great success.
