Sixth Graders Earn Recognition At District Science Day
Olivia Kude of Seven Hills and Shivam Mahajan of Parma Heights participated in the 2022 District Science Day. The two of them earned the ranking of "Excellent" for their projects “Gasteria vs Crassula” and “Stealthy figures” respectively. The sixth graders were among a record-breaking number of 5th through 8th grade Birchwood students to receive recognition at the event.
Annual Science Day competitions are programs of The Ohio Academy of Science. They encourage students to dive into the most pressing issues of our time using strict adherence to the rigorous scientific method. This year the competition was virtual, so in addition to their extensive scientific research and experimentation, students submitted a video presentation of their project for the judges.
Abigail McNaughton is an alumni of Birchwood School of Hawken and excited to be reporting on the successes of current students.
