At the Polk Regional Science and Engineering Fair Awards last night, LCS experienced extraordinary success. Under the direction of Mr. Matthew Croxton, our students had the best showing ever.
They received two second place awards and EIGHT first place awards. Seven students will compete in the Florida State Science and Engineering Fair in March 2019. All of the project titles and place awards are listed in the spreadsheet below.
Emilie Morin and Kylah Blough placed second in their categories.
Wenjo Lai, Neil Dave, Lauren Jones, Hannah Aplin, and Kelsey Winters placed first in their categories.
The team of Connor McLoughlin and Alan Stewart won first place and Best of Fair in the Junior Division.
Lauren Nonnenmocher won first place and Best of Fair in the Senior Division and was selected to compete at the International Science and Engineering Fair in Phoenix in May 2019.
Congratulations to Mr. Croxton and to each student. To God be the glory.
