Science Fair at Massey-Vanier was both stimulating and successful

By Louise Smith

On Thursday, January 30, both elementary and secondary students filled half the cafeteria space with 112 projects. Three elementary schools were represented: Butler Elementary from Bedford, Farnham Elementary, and Parkview Elementary from Granby. The secondary students from Massey-Vanier represented Cowansville and many surrounding towns. The organizer, Dawn Singfield, was pleased with how everything went smoothly. She had worked a long time to make sure that everything came together. She did a wonderful job. All the projects had three judges visit because of the high number of volunteer judges. With all the work that goes into a project, it is important that each project be seen a multiple of times. Principal Julie Edwards welcomed visiting students, parents, and staff, and enjoyed seeing the variety of projects from both them and Massey-Vanier students.
