William E. Hay Grade 12 Science Fair

Grade 12 students from William E. Hay Composite High School in Stettler presented their projects at the school’s first senior science fair

Grade 12 students from William E. Hay Composite High School in Stettler presented their projects at the school’s first senior science fair last Thursday.

The science fair was “a learning process for everyone,” but teacher Mark Siemens was happy with the outcome.

“It’s the first time, so you’re never quite sure what you’re going to get,” he said. “There are some awesome projects here.”

The winning entries weren’t announced.

The students began work on their projects in the second week of October, and their hard work definitely showed. Take 17-year-old Andrew Somerville, for instance. His project included lasers and dry ice.

Somerville believes the Grade 12 science fair is a good idea, because the only other time his class did something similar was in Grade 5.

“I think it (the science fair) was an excellent idea,” Somerville said. “We’re so much more aware … we can do so much more.”

He said that when students have to focus on a certain subject, it gets them more interested than if they were just trying to get a good mark. And most students agreed that the science fair was a success.

“I was totally into it,” said Morgan Sorensen, whose project was about microphones. “I would like to see this continue after I graduate.”
