Elementary Science Fair in Western Colorado

The local elementary students in Grand Junction recently participated in the Western Colorado Elementary Science Fair at the EUREKA! McConnell Science Museum. This year’s fair was one of the largest, with entries from all over the Grand Valley. One hundred and thirty students showcased over 80 entries, marking a significant increase from the previous year’s 104 students with 64 entries.

Students at the science fair used the scientific method to investigate various topics, such as earthquake resistance and the melting points of different types of chocolate. The projects were a result of formulating testable questions, designing experiments, and analyzing data to draw conclusions from their hypotheses.

Joely Anysz, the EUREKA! science fair coordinator, expressed her excitement about the event, as it was her first year running it. She mentioned that seeing the children come together to showcase their hard work was a rewarding experience for her. The fair had participants from 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades, with each grade level having a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place contestant who were awarded medals and gift bags.

The award winners in each grade were as follows:
5th Grade
1st Place: Dawson Hamaker
2nd Place: Luke and Max Bagley
3rd Place: Julia Stephen
4th Grade
1st Place: Miles Goforth

The event showcased the talents and hard work of young scientists in the community and highlighted their enthusiasm for exploring the world through science.
