Two students placed in the Top Ten in the Junior Division, for their papers on "How does the Temperature of a Magnet Affect the Voltage Produced in a Generator" (Engineering) and "Observing the Effects of Previous Diets on a Mealworm's Ability to Biodegrade Polystyrene" (Zoology), and one student won the Jay & Jeremy Hoffmann Memorial Award for submitting her paper on "How much does Glass, Plastic, or Different Types of Metal Collect Water" in the materials category.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
 

On Saturday at the poster session, Four students won "Best in Category" honors from the Junior Division. Nine Gold Awards: Behavioral Sci, Botany, Environmental Science, Engineering, Chemistry, Zoology, two Silver Awards: Chemistry for "Colligative Properties", Behavior Science, "Does color affect short term memory?", and one Bronze Award went to Cellular science, "Vinegar Effect: can it prevent cancer?".

This competition is an excellent experience for students to go beyond the classroom to develop their own investigations. SAC would like to congratulate all of the students, faculty, and parents that participated in and supported the school.

SAC's mission is to provide an accelerated STREAM (Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering, Arts and Math) focused private education while nurturing the student as a whole in a loving and caring environment.

The Science Academy's goals are based upon the school's philosophy and an underlying respect for the individual child. Admission is open to all qualified students and is not based on race, religion, color or ethnic origin.
