Science celebrated at showcase

Apr. 28, 2013 @ 12:00 AM

HUNTINGTON -- Cabell County Schools held a science innovation and invention showcase on April 22 at Huntington High School, celebrating the work of students from every level.

"The focus was to celebrate students using their ingenuity to invent or innovate new ways to solve problems," said Lenora Richardson, the curriculum supervisor for Cabell County Schools.

She said about 50 students participated in the showcase, but more took part at school-sponsored fairs or events. The format, she said, was to promote scientific problem solving for the love of learning rather than competing against one another.

Richardson said there was a variety of projects, including robotics from a third-grade class at Ona Elementary. And a kindergartner tried to make orange juice taste better by adding baking soda.

"The students seemed to have a good time and were very excited to share their ideas with friends, family, and guests," Richardson said.
