This includes: the Polk Regional Science and Engineering Fair, the Florida Junior Academy of Science (FJAS), and the State Science and Engineering Fair; all under the guidance of Mr. Matthew Croxton, M.S., one of the RISE Program Facilitators.

All awardees & research project information can be seen here:

8th grade LCS and RISE student researcher, Kylah Blough earned a second place in the Animal Science category at the Polk Regional Science & Engineering Fair this year for her research titled: Wing Reflectance Variation in the Territorial White Peacock Butterfly.

Mr. Croxton, the teacher for the Experimental Science students, is excited for what will come in the 2019-2020 school year.  “Most LCS families don’t know what Mr. Croxton’s class does in RISE with Experimental Science.  The video [below], about Kylah Blough’s research (produced by a team of professionals), helps tell the broader story— LCS RISE is striving to become the premiere research program for middle and high school students in the Southeast,” states Jennifer Canady, M.A., Director, RISE Institute.
