WJCC Schools high school students did not let remote learning deter them from presenting creative and thoughtful projects for the 5th Annual Division Science Fair. Projects were submitted and judged virtually, but our student scientists were guided through the process by teachers who served as sponsors. Projects were judged by a community of researchers who evaluated the students’ research questions, methodology, data collection and virtual presentation.
This year’s overall winner is Jamestown High School’s Tristan Grubbs who presented The Effect of Paper Towel Brand on How Much Water it Can Absorb. Doria Aractingi, also from Jamestown High School, is the division’s runner up, with The Effects of Distance, Physical Obstruction, and Different Frequency Bands on Wi-Fi Signal Strength.

Select winners will participate in the Tidewater Regional Science Fair in March, also planned to be a virtual competition.
WJCC Schools extends congratulations to all winners and participants, and thanks the judges and teachers who volunteered their time in support of our students.
