Freeport High School showcases students during annual science fair

Are “Green” detergents less toxic than traditional? What is the effect of UV Light on crystal formations? Can you measure concentration based on brain activity? These were some of the questions Freeport High School students answered as they presented their research projects at the school’s 18th annual science and engineering fair. 

Under the direction of science teacher, Brian Snyder, the students presented projects in a variety of areas including chemistry, engineering, environmental science, health, medicine and zoology. 

“The annual science and engineering fair is one of the premier STEM events for our district,” said Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Kishore Kuncham. “It features the diligent efforts of our students and allows them to exhibit their research and all they have learned since entering the high school.” 

Throughout the day, students proudly shared their research projects with a team of judges which included high school teachers and administrators, science and engineering professionals and college professors. 

Each year Freeport High School’s science department hosts the fair to provide students with the opportunity to apply the STEM knowledge they have gained at the school and to demonstrate these important skills to others.
