Have you ever wondered if the colour of your birthday candle affects how quickly it burns? Or if your favourite pet is left or right pawed? These are some of the questions our curious Year 8’s have been pondering – and answering – after completing their Science Fair projects recently. There were many high quality and interesting projects, and deciding on the 3 winners was a hard job for the judges.
The top 10 projects won themselves a spot at the NIWA North Harbour Science Fair on Friday 6 September at Massey University. This was for their well investigated and presented projects. Well done to all the Year 8 learners who completed projects!
1st prize - Jonny Milne
2nd Prize - Jesse Lu
3rd Prize - Zachary Collier
NIWA North Harbour Finalists: Jonny Milne, Jesse Lu, Zachary Collier, Ruby Teviotdale, Ava Barnard, Oliver Marchant, Lucas Wyeth, Ananda Fox, Katelyn Winter, April Lodge, Connor Barnett, Finlay Miller and Skylah Thompson.
