Science Fair Winners!

GLA students John B. and Faith C. won 2nd place at the Mapleton District Science Fair for their Chemistry research on The Decomposition of Hydrogen Peroxide. Their "experiment demonstrated that catalysts lower the activation energy required for the decomposition of hydrogen peroxide", and that "the rate of reaction was found to be dependent on the nature and amount of the catalyst used".

Student Astrid C. also completed a notable project Exploring the Ammonia Quantity in the Dynamics of Fountain Effects.
