Woodsboro Sixth Graders Participate in the Orange County Science Fair!

Tejal Patel, Campus Life Editor

This year, fifteen students from Woodsboro got the chance to participate in the Orange County Science and Engineering Fair. The OCSEF is a nonprofit organization which has helped promote science and engineering in Orange County since 1955. It is a countywide science fair that is held annually at the OC Fair and Event Center in Costa Mesa. Students from both middle schools and high schools are invited to come and enter their science fair board in this competition. Their boards are categorized into different subjects such as physics, chemistry and biology. They then judged by volunteers who are experts on their subjects. The first step of the judging process is to set up an interview time with the judges. The interview time is 1-hour long, and different judges will come and ask you questions about your project. After your interview time is over, your boards are then judged and analyzed by the judges. Students will come and see if they received any awards on May 26, 2015. Winners of the middle school competition are then allowed to compete in the California State Science Fair.  Congratulations to all the 6th graders who got the opportunity to participate in the OCSEF!
