Students win first place honors at the 54th Annual West Virginia State Science and Engineering Fair
Two Davis Center School students won first place honors in the Team Project Category at the 54th Annual West Virginia State Science and Engineering Fair March 31 st. John Smith, science instructor, supervised the project “How Does the Shape of a Coil Affect the Performance of an Electric Motor?”
"We wouldn't even have thought this was possible if it weren't for Mr. Smith," the students said.
Jim Marple, Acting Lead Teacher at the Davis Center School, cites this accomplishment as a prime example of cooperation between the Office of Institutional Education Programs and the Division of Juvenile Services.
"Ms. Stephanie Bond, Superintendent of the Davis Center, and Mr. Dale Humphreys, Director of the Division of Juvenile Services, championed this effort from the beginning," Mr. Marple said.
The project placed second overall at the Eastern Regional Science Fair and first at the Tucker County School Science Fair.
