Fourth Annual AV STEM Expo – 2018
This year’s STEM Expo showed 95 projects from 7 different categories including: Environmental/Agricultural Innovation, Invention, Reverse Engineering, Robotics & Computer Science, Rube Goldberg, Science Fiction, and Scientific Inquiry. There was a fantastic display of ingenuity and thought in this year’s entries. We had approximately a dozen judges from the community coming from fields of science and engineering to help score the projects this year. In the end, however, there was one grand prize winner. Dorsa Rahmani’s (QHHS) scientific inquiry into Manuka honey and how it can be used to combat humankind’s ever growing resistance to antibiotics took the top prize, a MacBook Air, a Kindle Fire HD 8, a trophy, and a medal. All other 1st place winners from each of the seven categories received a Kindle Fire HD 8 tablet, a medal, and a trophy. Thank you to everyone who participated and good luck next year.
