With much verve and enthusiasm, the seventh grade scientists presented their science fair projects to a team of twenty-three judges on Thursday, January 30th in the Kevin O’ Malley auditorium. Judges were recruited from near and far to support the work of the young scientists. This is the first year that BFCCPS science fair finalists will be eligible to participate in the Region III fair in Fall River, with the potential of also moving forward to the Massachusetts State Science and Engineering Fair. Thank you to all who come out to support this educational, creative, and fun event!
