Golden Apple: BMS Science Fair
Middle school students were ready to show off research projects that took weeks of work.
The annual science fair at Bemidji Middle School featured a gym full of project posterboards and other displays. Students were able to choose from 12 research categories, but had full creative control of what topic to research.
Teachers said the goal was for students to demonstrate an understanding of the scientific method, from developing a research question to analyzing experiment data and reaching a conclusion.
A total of 50 judges, each of whom looked at four individual projects, helped choose a 1st and 2nd place winner for every category.
