Congratulations to seventh graders Hannah Shuffer and Samantha Wittenberg who were awarded first place trophies in the annual Brady Middle School Science Fair for their project "What's In Your Mouth?"!  

More than two dozen students participated in the fair which was coordinated by Gifted Intervention Specialist Jen McGeown and Orange PTA representative Caroline LeBel-Smith.  Students created, tested and presented a wide array of scientific experiments to judges comprised of scientists, engineers and professors from around Northeastern Ohio.

Shuffer and Wittenberg won first place for their experiments with isolating the sense of taste in males and females. A second place trophy was awarded to sixth grader Samantha Occhionero for her study of the effects of volcanic ash on plants. The third place trophy was awarded to eighth grader Jacob Cramer for his experiment entitled, "How does age affect color perception?"

Other projects included the merits of new vs. old tennis balls, the melting process of crayons, and the number of steps teenage females take every day, among others. The judges congratulated and commended all of the participants on their research and projects.

As part of this year's Science Fair, students in advisor Scott Face's BMS Reptile Lunch Group had the opportunity to showcase not only the work they had done learning about and discussing reptiles...but also the reptiles themselves! Eighth graders Daithan Hinton and Brandon Bilfield showed off some of their favorite reptiles...a crested gecko and a uromastyx! Also on display were an iguana, two bearded dragons and a leopard gecko.

Congratulations to all of the student participants in this year's Science Fair!
