Dublin Schools Win Awards at the Alameda County Science and Engineering Fair

March 13, 2013

Dublin High School Alameda County Science and Engineering Fair Project 9

Dublin High School, Fallon Middle School, Wells Middle School, St. Raymond’s Catholic School and Valley Christian School all participated on behalf of their schools and the City of Dublin at the Alameda County Science and Engineering Fair last Saturday (March 9). Dublin High School led the way with more participants than any other school at the fair – over 60 Dublin High School students participated representing 37 different projects earning 4 first place, 1 second place, 5 third place, and 5 fourth place awards. Fallon Middle School also secured a first place award, and Wells Middle School and St. Raymond’s Catholic School also took home awards. More important than the awards, however, was the effort by all participants to apply the scientific method to real world problems. In all hundreds of students from schools across Alameda County participated in the event.

Dublin High School’s young scientists were also awarded two Best in Category awards, for “Helping Handicapped Kids Play Basketball” and “The Efficiency of a Spectrophotometer”. The students that created “Helping Handicapped Kids Play Basketball” earned partial funding to attend the California State Science Fair (CSSF) in Los Angeles later this year. Congratulations to these young scientists and the teachers that support their efforts.
