ODU Web Center Norfolk, Virginia, Tidewater Regional Science Fair, on March 12, 2011
My niece, Alper is the first place winner of 60th Tidewater Regional Science Fair in Earth and Planetary Sciences Junior division, Norfolk Virginia, with his project Solar Roller.
We are so proud of him!
Projects at the 60th annual Tidewater Science Fair at Old Dominion University on Saturday studied topics ranging from feline asthma to oil spills. The competition was open to students from any of the school districts in the Tidewater region.
“It’s amazing what some of these kids can do and the effort they put into it,” said Chuck Good, science fair judge and facility systems safety engineer with NASA Langley. “These are the kids that will graduate in the top of their class. These are the shining stars, so to speak.”
Students and parents spent the better part of the day at Old Dominion University’s Webb Center viewing other students’ projects, explaining their projects to passersby and waiting for the awards assembly that began at 2 p.m.
Students were inspired by their interests and the issues they encounter in their daily lives.
