From color to mice, middle school's science fair has variety of projects

Patrick Fisher, Staff Writer

New Prague Middle School's annual science fair had 16 entries that ranged from projects concerning the effects of music, to what food teens prefer, to air pressure in basketballs.

The 29 students who participated in the middle school's science fair on Thursday, Jan. 11, worked either in teams of two or by themselves.

Twenty-one students received blue ribbons. Nineteen of them will be going to the Regional Science Fair at the University of Minnesota, Mankato. Regional competition for seventh and eighth graders is March 3 and for sixth graders, it is in April. Those who did solo projects and will be attending are Thomas Liepold, Katie Morris, Stevie Salaba, Cailin Sullivan and Rena Weis. Teams of two that will be competing are Nikki Russell and Kaitlyn Schoenbauer, Emily Rezac and Anna Rynda, Ben Stepka and Alex Hendricks, Monica Turner and Jenny Trettel, Lauren Schoenbauer and Allison Aase, Jennifer Natole and Katie Olson and Molly Wick and Abbey Wymer.

Four teams of two received red ribbons. They were Alexa Lohrentz and Whitney O'Day, Sarah Miller and Brittany Watschke, Meghan McLaughlin and Breanna Davidson and Hannah Kallsen and Megan Lambrecht.

Aase and Schoenbauer, seventh graders, had a project titled Black and White or Color. It tested to see if people remember things better in black and white or color. Their project grew out of information they found on the internet. For the study, the two girls tested 15 of their fellow seventh graders. They found people remembered information better if it was presented in black and white.

We think it's because there's not as much to focus on
