WISD scientists succeed at regionals

Kaitlyn Marinos, a first place winner in the Regional Science Fair in Austin, answered a very important question in her science experiment, “Are Worms Healthier with Different Diets?”

In February, several students at Danforth Junior High took on the Annual Regional Science Fair in Austin. Eighth grade students Julia Rennels and Ally Bowman, seventh grade students Lea Martin and Kaitlyn Marinos, and sixth grade student Maia Martin all traveled to the fair.

Marinos won first place in the Animal Sciences category with her project, “Are Worms Healthier with Different Diets?”

Martin placed fourth out of 80 entries in the Earth science category. Bowman earned a special certificate recognizing her project from the Austin Watershed Protection Organization.

“It is great to experience so much enthusiasm for science among our students. Being a part of the fair is a great way for them to learn from their peers and share with them everything they have learned through their projects,” said Bess Reisberg, seventh grade science teacher.

The students showcased their experiments at the annual
Wimberley ISD STEAM Fair on March 2 at Wimberley High.


Maia Martin is all smiles when talking about her very well-executed science fair project—a fourth place winner at the Regional Science Fair in Austin.
