“It was very enlightening to see the types of problems and questions these students were tackling with their projects. I never in a million years would have thought that middle school and high school students would be taking up the projects that they did. It was very inspiring to see that,” said John Means, director of District 14 Science Day at Rio Grande. “It’s apparent that these students are being well-prepared. These projects really are a reflection of not just the students, but also the teachers and the time they have spent working with them.”

Due to a conflict with another scholastic event, Rohit and Serena Kataria, of Wheelersburg Schools, were unable to attend the District 14 Science Day; they instead attended District 8 Science Day at OU Lancaster. Serena won the Fairfield Medical Award, and Rohit qualified for Buckeye Science and Engineering Fair which provides a chance to advance to International Fair. He also won a one-year subscription to Popular Science, awarded to top 10 high school scorers. Both received Superior ratings and will advance to State Science Day. Both Rohit and Serena Kataria won the Gabriel Medical Award and the Burger Medical Science Award.
