RMS hosts Science Showcase Night
PELHAM – Sixth, seventh and eighth grade students at Riverchase Middle School put their creativity on display during the school’s Science Showcase Night on Wednesday, January 18.
The sixth grade students created interactive stations about the environment, seventh grade students created models and posters of cells and the eighth graders were allowed to chose a topic for their projects.
First, second and third place awards were given to the eighth grade students in each of five categories. The students were tasked with completing a project that fit into the category of engineering, behavioral and social sciences, product and consumer analysis, physical science and biology, health and medicine.
The first place winners in each category received a trophy and the second and third place winners received medals.
“I was very impressed,” said eighth grade science teacher Alicia Melton. “This is our third year doing this and one of the rules is that there can’t be any duplicate project ideas. The students were very creative and we didn’t hardly have any students with the same idea.”
Melton also thanked the parents and the community for attending the showcase and supporting the students.
