Scientifically speaking…

Blount students show their stuff at county Science Fair

No one was carrying around a microscope or sporting a white lab coat, but there was definitely a sense of discovery in the air at the Blount County Schools Science Fair on Tuesday, Feb. 23. Heritage High School was the setting as approximately 100 students in grades 4th through 8th competed in several divisions.

The Science Fair is part of the Academic Events Calendar of Blount County Schools, which is sponsored by the Talented and Gifted Program in Blount. Diane Bain, TAG teacher, coordinated the event. Trophies were donated by Vulcan Materials and the Blount County Education Foundation.

John Dalton, principal at Townsend Elementary School announced the winners. Trophies were presented by Blount County Director of Schools Rob Britt.
