NC will attend and compete in the Cobb-Paulding Regional Science Fair, an annual event that will take place at Kennesaw Mountain High School on Saturday, February 10.

“I’m actually really grateful that I might have the opportunity to share my research on blue waves and their negative impact on sleep patterns because it’s really beneficial to the everyday person,” senior Alex Llamas said.

NC science fair participants usually appear as students who took Magnet Biology or Honors Biology as freshmen and completed research projects in those classes.

However, upperclassmen can enter the science fair as well, and use their experience working on projects in their Advanced Science Research or AP Research course.

In addition, Science Fair rules state that only ten students from a single school can enter. Each January, Magnet Biology and Astronomy teacher Grant McDurmon and other teachers in the science department collaborate and devise a plan to recruit potential candidates.

“I and the other science teachers reach out personally to those students who we feel did exceptional work on their research projects, and we encourage them to register for the Science Fair,” McDurmon said.

A  final list of names of those students who will commit to competing in this year’s science fair remains unfinalized, but McDurmon expects at least 8 or 9 students will represent NC at the fair.
