At its annual Science Fair, a number of eighth graders at St. Peter School showcased their knowledge of science and technology. Winners from St. Peter then went on to represent their school at CCRI. Samantha Wynne won a first place for her project titled, What will hold the cold? Callie Williams won a second place for Tinsulation. Dan Obrien won a third place with his project, Can you read me now? And Jordan Huntoon also took home a third for Does height matter?
In addition to a Science Fair, St. Peter participated in Rhode Island’s National History Day. The theme of this year’s History Day was Revolution, Reaction, Reform in History. In order to participate, middle school students researched information regarding this topic. Stephanie Langevin, a seventh grader, represented her school in the exhibit category with a project she titled, Reforming Women’s Education. Daniel OBrien and Dean Russo, both eighth graders, presented their documentaries at Providence College. Dean Russo’s documentary on the Seabees won the National Maritime Society 2nd place award. This is an award that is only presented to two students in the junior division.
