As more and more science, technology, mathematics and engineering-minded graduates are needed to meet workforce demands, participation in science and engineering fairs are important steps students take along the way to that career pathway.  These types of competitions foster creativity and innovation by giving students the freedom to demonstrate their personal inquiries and explore their interests in STEM through a chosen topic.

Onslow County Schools District Science and Engineering Fair, held at the American Legion Building Dec. 12,
was open to students kindergarten through 12th grade.  A total of 94 projects from 15 schools and involving 108 students were submitted for judging.  Students stood by their project displays, answered questions, talked to the judges about their scientific research and shared their findings.  Outside, their parents and family members waited anxiously until the judging was completed and they were free to enter the building, check out all the entries and wait for the announcement of those receiving trophies and the opportunity to advance to the Regional level competition.

Along with other science and engineering fair winners of OCS, Ginevieve Cunningham, a student at Blue Creek, moves on to Regionals being held February 10 at UNC-Wilmington with her project "The Magical Wonders of Rock Candy."  Congratulations!
