CHA Student Places at Synopsys Science Fair

Ten Canyon Heights Academy students competed in the annual Synopsys Science Fair on March 23 at the San Jose Convention Center. Students presented their experiments to multiple judges and competed with middle school students all across the bay area. Congratulations to all of the students who competed!

Congratulations particularly to 6th grader Jasmine Clancy who won 2nd place in the Biological Science and Engineering Category. She competed approximately 100 other students in the junior division (grades 6-8). Her experiment is titled “Grow, Grow, Grow Your Plants.” She studied what type of solution was best to use to preserve cut flowers. This is the first time a CHA student has received an award in this category.

Middle School science teacher Ms. De Leys Hamm commented about “the great amount of effort that all the students put into their experiments! I am very proud of them!”

The annual Synopsys Championship showcases students in the Santa Clara County of California who will become our future scientists, technology experts, engineers, and mathematicians. This regional competition celebrates achievement by middle and high school students supported by their parents, teachers, and schools.
