The flu didn’t stop 103 young scientists from participating in the 2011 Science Fair at the Owen County Elementary School Feb. 23.
Teena Gamble, gifted and talented program resource teacher for Owen County primary and elementary schools, said the excitement ran high as students and parents set up projects that showed many hours of hard work and patience.
“This is just another example where parents play a huge role in their child’s education,” Gamble said. “For the fourth year in a row, Kentucky American Water has supported our science fair by offering incentives. I am so proud that our students take this challenge and work hard to turn out such outstanding projects, which demonstrated a tremendous amount of hard work and time. We are lucky to have such great teachers in the primary and elementary schools who spark learning for science, and parents help carry through that learning with their projects.
