Phoenixville, PA – On Saturday, April 21st, 2018, Renaissance Academy (RA) hosted its 2018 Science Fair. Participating in the fair, which encourages students to conduct original scientific research, were young RA scientists from kindergarten through third grade.

The project submissions from these inspired students were judges based on a variety of elements including hypothesis, experimental design, data collection, display, purpose, and interviews by the judges.

The 2018 RA Kindergarten-3rd Grade winners are as follows:

Kimberly Wheeles, 1st/2nd grade teacher and the coordinator of all Renaissance Academy’s science fair participation, was very pleased with this year’s fair. “I am always impressed by the creativity and scientific inquisitiveness of our young researchers.” Mrs. Wheeles also credits the judges and volunteers for the event’s success. “I'm so fortunate to work with such dedicated staff members. We had nine judges, including two high school juniors who took time out of their Saturday to evaluate the work of our remarkable, budding scientists!"
