Bucyrus Secondary students showcasing science projects April 9

The Bucyrus Secondary School is excited to host the annual Science Night in the High School commons and Middle School gymnasium Tuesday, April 9.

Nearly 200 students in grades 7 through 12 will be involved in either the Middle School Science Fair, the High School STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) or in a support capacity as a member of the Bucyrus High School Science Club.

“We made the move to the STEAM event last year and it was a huge success,” Eighth Grade Science teacher and event organizer Lorraine Kaufman said. “This format allows us to include more students from engineering technologies, physics, chemistry, astronomy, botany, forensic science, physical science, and anatomy & physiology and art classes in the evening’s festivities.”

The High School students’ projects are hands-on, demonstrative and interactive in nature.  Both Middle School and High School students will be at their projects ready to explain their project and showcase their hard work.

Seventh and eighth grade honors science classes with be holding an open science fair where friends, family and community members can view all the middle school projects in the gymnasium. Those who view the projects are invited to vote for their favorite project, best of show and various other categories.

“The high school students really embraced the opportunity to show off their work in the new format last year,” Kaufman said. “The collaboration between students in the classes is absolutely incredible, and I can’t wait for the community and the students’ families to see the results of their work.”

The event gets underway at 6:00 p.m. Any Bucyrus community members are welcome to attend Science Night and evaluate High School STEAM projects and the Middle School projects.

“Science Night is an outstanding showcase of the many talents of our students,” Superintendent Kevin Kimmel said. “I would encourage the families of our Elementary School students to attend this special night to see what’s possible for them as they continue their journey as Bucyrus students!”
