South Central Indiana science and engineering fair held at Ivy Tech

March 22, 2010

Bloomington, Ind. On Saturday March 6, 56 students from around the region participated in the South Central Indiana Regional Science and Engineering Fair hosted at Ivy Tech Community College at 200 Daniels Way on the west side of Bloomington.

A panel of judges made up of Ivy Tech faculty and staff, IU faculty and Ivy Tech service-learning students scored participants in 19 different categories, ranging from Animal Science Behavior to Physics of Motion. Participating schools included Lighthouse Christian Academy Junior High School, Lighthouse Christian Academy Senior High School, Greensburg Junior High School, Greensburg Community High School, and Bloomington High School North.

Ivy Tech’s Chancellor Award was earned by Harrison Gaebler (Bloomington High School North) and Ivy Tech’s Vice Chancellor Award was earned by Sammee Johnson (Lighthouse Christian Academy Senior High). Both Gaebler and Johnson are senior division international advancers, and will compete in San Jose, CA.
