Exploring Science and History

CCA’s first annual Science and History Fair was held on March 10, 2015. The fair provided our students with a great opportunity for experimentation and in-depth exploration into fascinating topics in history and science. The 3rd-6th grade classes researched history projects, including topics from American and world history. The junior high and high school created science projects ranging from physics, to animal behavior and human health. Mrs. Lynn Poore, our high school science teacher, stated, "Students learn how to do independent research studies, which is an invaluable experience. Hands-on learning contributes to students gaining the skills needed to become competitive in the 21st Century." Whether learning from the past or designing experiments to benefit the future, the students had a wonderful competitive learning experience. There were many high-quality projects and we congratulate the winners below.
