Tygers Head To Science Day

2 Mar , 2018  

Eight projects involving 10 students will represent Mansfield Senior High School at the seven-county Mohican District Science Day at Ashland University on March 24.

The eight earned “superior” ratings from staff and community judges Thursday afternoon during Senior High’s annual science fair in the commons. Students were required to explain the steps involved in their projects, including hypothesis, materials, procedure, results and conclusion.

Science teacher Phyllis Randall, who organizes the science fair, said there were 16 entries.

Students who will compete at Ashland University and their projects include:

  • Aubreion Chatman and Megan Supron – “What kind of whole wheat will have the most gluten?”
  • Joslynn Odom – “Blasting flu viruses; Why annual flu shots?”
  • Kelsi Spayde – “How much energy is stored in different types of food?”
  • Amber Thompson – “Electrolysis in water”
  • Shalom Ewing and Jakari Brown – “Fingerprints of family members”
  • Blair McClenathan – “Fermentation and you; Rate of fermentation”
  • Aurel Toska – “Smart energy drinks; Energy drink effect on productivity”
  • Elijah Allen – “Is music a mood changer?”

Students from Richland, Wayne, Holmes, Medina, Lorain, Huron and Erie counties will participate in Mohican District Science Day. Those who receive “superior” ratings may then be selected to move on to the Ohio Academy of Science’s State Science Fair May 12 at Ohio State University.
