Three freshmen competed in the annual State Science and Engineering Fair which was held in Wichita on April 6.

Each project was presented to at least three judges over the course of three hours in the morning. That was followed by a three-hour lunch break with awards following.

Freshman Catherine Raacke competed in Division 1 Biochemistry.

Raacke placed second in her division. She also won honorable mention for Biogenius along with a $100 check and a $500 scholarship to KAMS for the 2019-2020 school year.

Freshmen Alicia Feyerherm and Anna Brull competed in Division 1 Animal Science. Their project did not place.

Raacke enjoyed the science fair and felt she placed pretty well for her first time attending.

“Personally, I feel like my first research project did well at state,” Raacke said. “Luckily there is room for improvement in the area I am studying, and I am excited for where the future takes it.”

Feyerherm felt her group did well even though they did not place.

“I feel like we did as well as we could have expected,” Feyerherm said. “I knew going into it that the competition would be much more intense than at the regional science fair. There were a lot of really great projects there, so I do not feel bad that we did not place. Those who did place really deserved it.”
