HOPE – Third and fourth grade students in the Gifted and Talented Program at Clinton Primary School were recognized Wednesday at the CPS Science Fair.

A total of 36 exhibits were displayed from which winners in places one through three were selected in three categories, including Life Science, Earth and Space Science, and Physical Science.

Projects were varied, from studying the density properties of various candies, to demonstrating how to distill fresh water by solar power, to determining how much moisture different varieties of beans require to germinate and grow

“We appreciate all of the hard work these students put into their projects,” GT Teacher Alvis Conway said during the presentations.
