Chatham Middle School recently held its 2024 Science and Technology Fair, which saw students in grades six through eight present their projects in the school gym. Each grade had a winner, with 6th grade Miles Schuster investigating the effect of outdoor temperature on solar panels, 7th grade Jack Galvin researching the energy levels of different fruits and vegetables, and 8th grade Lucy Tassinari and Logan Van Wie testing different heat protectors.

The fair was open to the public in the evening, allowing parents and community members to see the students’ hard work. Winners were announced at the end of the event, with Jack Galvin, Miles Schuster, Lucy Tassinari and Logan Van Wee recognized for their outstanding projects. The event provided an opportunity for students to showcase their science and technology skills, fostering a love of STEM subjects at Chatham High School.

Students were required to develop a hypothesis or technical problem and then use either the scientific method or the problem-solving method to prove or disprove their theory or find a solution to their problem. Judging took place during the school day, with faculty members from the high school and high school science and technology departments evaluating the projects. The classes had the opportunity to look at the projects as well.
