Rotherglen Students Attend BASEF 2015
On Friday, March 26, 2015, Rotherglen students Amber, Chloe and Christine participated in the Bay Area Science and Engineering Fair (BASEF), held at Mohawk College in Hamilton. This annual event draws students in Grades 7 through 12 from Hamilton, Halton, Haldimand, Norfolk, Brant, and Six Nations, and offers them an opportunity to showcase their hard work on science, technology, engineering, and math related projects. Amber and Chloe entered their science project on Vitamin C levels in fruit juices, while Christine entered her project on the impact of fertilizer nitrates on aquatic life growth.
The fair consisted of an activity morning with guest speakers and in the afternoon, the girls each presented their projects to 4 different judges. The girls returned to Mohawk College on Saturday, March 28, to showcase and present their projects to the general public.
Christine won the Silver Merit Award and the BASEF 500 Award. Each of the girls enjoyed their experience.
