Congratulations and “Good Luck” to our new student, Joseph Wong, who has been selected to represent his school, Hyattsville Middle School, and present his STEM Project at the 64th Annual Prince George’s County STEM Fair this Saturday, March 17th. It’s a 3-day event and Saturday is the primary day for Judging.
We are very proud of you, Joseph!!
It was a long weekend but well worth it. The STEM fair was very competitive, the projects quite unimaginable for 12 – 15 year olds. There were participants from three counties, Prince George’s, Calvert and St. Mary’s.
Joseph did well in his category Engineering: Materials and Bio-engineering. His project was titled “The Power of Poop”. He tested different bio-masses to see which will produce the greatest amount of bio-gas (methane) at the fastest rate. He placed third in his category and got two special awards: the Robert L. Wistort “Best Presentation” award, given to the student who makes the best oral presentation of his/her project/exhibit, and the Izaak Walton League of America award for promoting clean and renewable energy technology.
He’s already looking forward to next year!
