FCS held its annual Middle School Science Fair in the Alumni Gymnasium where the projects of 6th, 7th and 8th grade students were displayed. Students presented a fascinating demonstration of their robots in action. Families and friends had the opportunity to view the students’ projects followed by the awards ceremony during which teachers Mrs. del Valle, Mrs. Hopkins and Mrs. Pericles honored the students for their exceptional projects.

Science Humanitarian Award: Yasmin Valiente – “Improving the Life of a Child with Emanuel Syndrome”
Yasmin’s older sister has Emanuel Syndrome and requires a gastric tube into her stomach. The area surrounding the opening tends to become inflamed and irritated. Yasmin’s science fair project was to determine if by placing a soft terrycloth pad she wrapped in cloth under the tube, would the skin be less irritated. After 3 weeks of testing time, it was determined that by using the soft pad that Yasmin developed, there was definitely a positive difference in the condition of the skin surrounding the opening. Congratulations to Yasmin!
