Three students from Pierceton Elementary School were honored with awards at the Northeast Indiana Regional Science Fair held at IPFW.
Jordyn Leininger, 8 years old and a PES second-grader, is the daughter of Thad and Rochelle Leininger. She was awarded Regional Winner at the Northeast Indiana Science Fair held at IPFW. Her experiment was entitled Plant and Animal Cells. Jordyn also received $100 from the Fort Wayne Vet Sciences. She plans to save the money. Her favorite subjects are math, reading and writing workshop. She recently finished reading A Series of Unfortunate Events: The Carnivorous Carnival.
Kaylee Allen and Angel Miller, PES fifth graders in Beth Woodard’s class, were awarded third place with their experiment in Crystal Growth. Kaylee is the daughter of Jeff and Abbie Sutton.
According to Kaylee, her favorite subject at school is reading because, “I like getting lost in a good book. I learned that atoms and molecules are in everything while we were working on our project that I didn’t know before. I’d like to learn about what would happen if I put salt in it for my next Science project. The book I am currently reading is Ivy and Bean Break the Fossil Record. I like it because it is adventures. When I finish high school I want to be a chef.”
Angel Miller is the daughter of Shawn and Emily Miller. Her favorite subject in school is math. She recently finished reading The Templeton Twins Have an Idea. Miller stated, “I learned that temperature actually does affect the growth of crystals.” When she grows up she wants to be a teacher because she thinks, “it would be cool to teach students who can learn things they don’t know before.” She stated that she enjoyed watching the crystals growing.
