Fairmont State University hosts science and engineering fair for high school students


Fairmont State University hosted the West Virginia Science and Engineering Fair on Saturday for students in grades 9-12 from all over the state. 

These students were able to conduct their own research projects and present their findings to a panel of judges. Several fields were represented, including engineering, computer science and mathematics. The students received help from their home high schools and colleges in their areas. 

FSU forensics professor Kristy Henson said she appreciated the real-world experience and knowledge the students gained through this.

“All of these students were able to go in, create their own research projects, formulate their own plans, conduct research on their own and it gives them an idea of what it’s like to be a scientist,” said Henson. 

The students will be able to use what they’ve learned through the fair in their future career fields.
