The caliber of inquiry conducted by the students of our schools rises each year during Science Fair season. With the support of their schools and their families, these hard working students reinforce the value our community places on science education.

The following students from Santa Cruz City Schools will advance to the California State Science Fair in May:

Branciforte Middle School: Teresa Netro

Santa Cruz High School: Shamik Mascharak

Mission Hill Middle School: Alexandra Venable, Asta Davidsdottir, Hailey Loehde-Woolard, Jacqueline Shekhtman, Laura Thorsett, Kalana Dulaney, Mollye Zahler, Monique Iuster, Rylan Pickett, Zoe Altenberg

Of the 52 students moving on to the state competition, 10 are from Mission Hill Middle School – outpacing every school (private, charter and comprehensive public)  in the county.

Congratulations, students!
