The EUP Intermediate School District (EUPISD) and EUP MiSTEM Region held the annual EUP Regional Science & Engineering Fair for grades K-8 on December 2, 2022, at Lake Superior State University. Schools that participated in this event were: Brimley, Cedarville, JKL Bahweting, Pickford, Sault-Lincoln Elementary, Sault-Washington Elementary, Sault Area Middle School, and St. Ignace. This year, 139 students advanced from local school district Science and Engineering Fair events to represent 89 projects in the regional event at LSSU.
Students were asked to present their ideas, methods, and results and to discuss their overall project. Judges then evaluated the project based on pre-set judging criteria. The judging panel consisted of members of our local community, governmental entities, My-Michigan-Sault, LSSU faculty, as well as EUPISD staff. Although all the projects were great, and it was a difficult decision for judges, the following students placed in the top three:
1st Place: Group Presentation: Sonny Postula, Johnathan Bullman, and Quinn Wilson (Cedarville) 2nd Place: Willy Edwards (Pickford) 3rd Place: Joanna Dombrowski (Sault-Washington)
