Science Fair at Immokalee High School
Immokalee High School recently held its first science fair, which culminated with a final project exhibit and award presentation. Students from IHS's Science Club and a handful of students in the Exceptional Student Education (ESE) Program at the Immokalee Technical Center (iTECH) participated in the fair. Science project topics ranged from moon crater formation, to magnetic racing, the effects of gravity, among many others. The potato launcher and tie dye experiment were the day’s top crowd pleasers. After review of all the projects, the judging panel chose the top four winners.
1st Place – Silvestre Gallegos (10th grade, Immokalee High School) “Propeller shape effect on propulsion”
2nd Place – Jose Hernandez (11th grade, Immokalee High School) “Solar heat vs. electric heat”
3rd Place – Willie Smith (11th grade, Immokalee High School) “Charging an iPod with an apple”
4th Place – Juan Canuto (9th grade, Immokalee Technical Center) “What keeps food fresh longer?”
