This year as all science and engineering fairs went virtual, Barrack seniors Kayla Bleier and Shirin Kaye decided to pursue their passions and move forward with their individual research projects despite the difficult format. Their hard work and perseverance was recognized last night by the Delaware County Science and Engineering Fair.
Kayla's research project, "The Role of Biomimicry in the Evolution of Modern Aircraft," received the first place award in the engineering category for her grade level. Additionally, Kayla was awarded the Delaware County Chapter of the Pennsylvania Society of Professional Engineers Special Award.
Shirin's research project, "Determining the Viability of Worm Castings as a Sustainable Environmentally Friendly Alternative Energy Source," received the first place award in environmental science. Additionally, Shirin was awarded the Environmental Science - Best of Category Award.
Both Kayla and Shirin will advance to the Delaware Valley Virtual Science and Engineering Fair next month where they can earn the possibility to compete in ISEF, the International Science and Engineering Fair in May, also held virtually this year. Please join us in wishing them strength and Mazal in the coming weeks!
