Congratulations to the Mariemont City School District elementary students who competed in the Southwest Ohio Science and Engineering Expo at University of Cincinnati.
The following students represented Mariemont Elementary at the Expo: Abby Black, Grace Erickson, Ethan Dill, Erika Dewey, Zoe Copetas and Alexandra Purdy.
"I can't thank Sheryl Melvin [6th grade science and social studies teacher] enough for leading the school's science fair and encouraging our students to enter the regional event at UC," said Ericka Simmons, principal at Mariemont Elementary. "It was such a great, hands-on experience for our students and a way for them to showcase their hard work outside of our district community."
Zoe Copetas and Alexandra Purdy were the winners of the Sigma Xi UC Chapter Award and have qualified for the Ohio Academy of Science State Science Day in May.
Terrace Park Elementary had five teams qualify to compete and had amazing results as well. Two projects received enough points to compete at the state competition at The Ohio State University in May.
Sammy Henkel and Nathan Turner earned $50 in awards from UC Young Scientists Awards for their project "Power of the Penny" and Evan Farrell earned almost $300 from GE and Skansa in award monies for his project "Cleat Coverz." Evan also earned an opportunity to compete at the national level and for $25,000 at the Broadcom MASTERS Program Science Competition.
