Leonardo’s OG&E Science Club finished the semester with a successful Science Fair on Dec. 11. “All of the students are to be congratulated on their hard work to produce these detailed projects,” commented Joyce Fales, Education Coordinator. “We hope the Science Club will encourage more children to seek a science background in college. Science is very important in our daily lives.
First prize, $100.00, was awarded to Jude Newman for his “Which Freezes Faster,” Second Prize, $50.00, went to Austin Lentz for his “Crystals” and Third prize, $25.00, went to Bentley Cantrell for his “Volcano – Which Went Higher.” Elijah Lentz’s project was “Earth.” Olivia Perez’s project was “Volcanos.” Braylon Perosi’s project was “Sink or Swim.” Every child that presented a project received prizes.
The Science Fair judges, who volunteered their time, were: Mike Ruby from OG&E, Whitney Hall from Oxbow Calcining, and Jamie Castle from Leonardo’s Children’s Museum. OG & E presented the club with a $25,000 grant in 2018 to help fund the Science Club at Leonardo’s.
