Wamego High School Students do very well at State Science Fair


The following students were recognized at the Board of Education meeting Monday April, 8th.

Out of 202 of the best and brightest student researchers and inventors from across the state of Kansas, Wamego brought home a Gold and two Silvers (1st and two 2nd's).
(two 2nds-- one from the "Science" side of the fair -- C.J. Hartley, and one from the "Engineering" side of the fair -- Isabella Budreau)

Emma McKee's (Pictured) project was "Dye-enhanced Solar Cells" in which she developed a method to generate electricity using the dye used to make white paint and the juice from raspberries. This research earned her a Gold Medal (1st place)
C.J. Hartley's (not pictured) project was "Ion Engine" in which he built a scale-model replica of an ion-drive engine as used on deep space probes, and tested its thrust capabilities. This research earned him a Silver (2nd place).
Isabella Budreau's (not pictured) project was to build a shape-drawing robot from scratch. Her creation earned her a Silver (2nd place).
Nadine Reifschneider (pictured) was recognized for the hours and hours of time dedicated to helping with the science fair. The Science Fair could not have been executed as smoothly as it was had it not been for Nadine's assistance!
