Queen of Peace School in Cloquet held its annual science fair Friday, April 7. Nineteen groups representing grades 1-6 exhibited science projects. Participating students explained their scientific inquiries and results to their teachers, family and friends at the public viewing held in the school gymnasium. Project topics ranged from trash bag strength to electrostatic propulsion and batteries made from fruit and vegetables to the impact of different teaching media. First place was awarded to Josilyn Nikko (fifth-grade) for her project on how memory and retention are affected by different colored text. Ava Ion (sixth grade) captured second place with her study of how long different container types kept liquids warm. Third place went to Ben Saletel, Joshua Bleskacek and Nikolas Gentilini (fourth grade) for their investigation of stealthy shapes. Judging this year's entries were William Van Loh, school principal; Father Justin Fish, Queen of Peace pastor; and Anne Lah, music and Spanish teacher. Contributed Photos
