2009 ESF/SCSD Environmental Challenge
Science Fair and Career Exploration for 7th and 8th grade Syracuse City School District students
More than 520 Syracuse City School District students participated in the eighth annual ESF Environmental Challenge in March.
"We're extremely pleased," said Terhi Majanen of ESF Outeach, "It will be the largest turnout ever, the largest by 200 students. The Syracuse City School District teachers and staff have really been promoting the science fair."
Also, Majanen said, ESF chemistry students did a lot of hands-on work in the Syracuse middle schools. The Syracuse students have been working on such scientific questions as: Does fluoride protect teeth from harsh beverages? What happens when celery doesn't get any air? Which gender has better visual memory? Is acid rain really bad? And are fingerprints inherited?
The students' work was on display in ESF's Moon Library and the Alumni Lounge in Marshall Hall.
