A fabulous Massachusetts State Middle School Science & Engineering Fair took place on Saturday, June 2nd at Worcester Technical High School. Students in grades 6-8 from all over the state spent the rainy day making new friends and explaining their projects to the volunteer judges. Two projects emerged as grand prize winners. From Melican Middle School in Northborough, Yashaswini Makram entered the grand-prize winning, "Accelerometer Apps: Sizing Up Smart Phones to Measure Height and Distance." Ethan Messier, a student at Swansea's New England Christian Academy, won the other grand prize with "Wave to the Future: The Utilization of Marine Waves Using Wave Buoys to Generate Electricity." Congratulations to Yashaswini, Ethan, and the other prize-winners on a tremendous accomplishment at this year's state middle school fair!
