Subject:National Science Honours for Bluewater
It was an exceptional showing for Team Bluewater at this year’s Canada-Wide Science Fair, which took place in Montreal from May 15th – 20th. For the first time in history, a local student advancing from the Bluewater Regional Science & Technology Fair won a platinum award at the national level for the top senior project.  Katherine Teeter, a grade 12 student from Grey Highlands Secondary School in Flesherton, received the honour following her senior division gold medal win for her project, Synthetic Limpet Teeth for Improved Joint Performance.  Additionally, Katherine won two ‘special awards’ at the event, making her the top science fair senior student in the country this year and recipient of a cash prize of $1,000 plus scholarships!

Elsewhere, grade 7 student Sophia Cottrill from Sullivan Community School in Desboro won gold and a ‘special award’ for her project, Evolution or Extinction? Time Will Tell for the King of the Arctic, while grade 8 student Nathan Williams from Elgin Market Public School in Kincardine (To Gyro or Not To Gyro) brought home a lot of wonderful experiences and ideas for next year.  Congratulations to these amazing students from Bluewater District School Board!
