Science Not ‘Lost In The Mix’ At JFK

Utica, NY (WIBX) – Students at JFK in North Utica were showcasing science projects on Thursday. It was the 3rd annual Science Fair.

Science Team Leader Josh Schreppel says it’s optional, so the students are allowed to explore areas they are interested in learning more about.

“We have Chemistry, Life Science, Behavioral Science, Consumer Science and Physics. The winners of each category can go on to Utica College to particpate in the regional science fair, which is a very large group with students from Oneida, Madison and Herkimer counties,” Schreppel said. 

Two years ago, the regional science fair winner came from JFK, he said.

About 75 students from 7th and 8th grades particpated, he said.  

Schreppel says the fair is important because science can sometimes get ‘lost in the mix.’

“With Science, sometimes we feel we get lost a little bit in the shuffle, because the state stresses is ELA and Math. Too much of the reporting we get in schools is negative about kids not making the state standards. We figured it would be a good to show off what good things do happen and what great skills these kids do have,” Schreppel said.

Below are some of the students and their projects.
