Young Scientists at University School of NSU Awarded for Projects in Multiple Disciplines

University School of NSU students in grades 6-8 recently tackled group behavior, boat hull design, eco-friendly lighting and algae mitigation to name just a few of this year’s science fair topics.

Middle School science fair projects are developed primarily in the classroom to afford students the opportunity to conduct thorough research, experiments and analysis under the supervision of a University School science teacher. Additional support for the written aspects of students’ presentations is further provided by University School English teachers.
