Projects completed by students from public and private schools in Prince William County and the cities of Manassas and Manassas Park were evaluated by category and organization judges at the regional science fair on March 23, 2019. Students competed in 13 categories: animal sciences, behavioral and social sciences, biochemistry, chemistry, computer sciences, earth and planetary sciences, engineering, environmental sciences, mathematics, medicine and health sciences, microbiology, physics, and plant science.

Grand Prize winners for the middle division are eighth-graders Tony Bright, Hamza Lateef, and Gabriel Ralston from Benton Middle School for their project titled, “To Breath or Not to Breath: Can face masks diminish inhaled pollution and improve health outcomes in drosophila melanogaster?”

Two teams from The Governor’s School were awarded Grand Prize placements in the senior division: Zachary Nowak and Ethan Saari for their project titled, “An alternate approach to predict elections beyond the polls,” and George French and Zane Vandivere for their project titled “Recycling Against Radiation.”

Congratulations to all participants, and of course to all category winners. A full list of winners can be found on the Prince William-Manassas Regional Science Fair webpage.
