This year's Sacred Heart Science Fair was our largest yet! With over 60 projects from Grades 9-12, there was a little something for everyone. Students worked hard to complete experiments in a variety of categories, including experimentation, innovation and research studies. We were extremely fortunate to have so many gracious members of our community who volunteered their time and expertise to provide feedback to our students. Our judges included alumnae/i, university professors, parents, friends, and families. The students with the winning projects will attend the Regional competition in April. Thank you to the many people who made this great event possible!
