Winners Named in SMS Science Fair

Congratulations to our students in grades 6-8 who recently participated in the 2016 St. Mary’s Science Fair on February 18th.  Fifteen of those students received awards for their projects. The winners from each category of Physical and Biological science will attend the Southern Appalachian Science & Engineering Fair (SASEF) at the University of Tennessee in April. We are so proud of the efforts of all of our young scientists!
