Seventh grade Holy Family student, Daniella Patrone, won Best of Show in this year's Science Fair. Charlotte Eskay, middle school science teacher, holds the Science Fair for students in grades 7 and 8 each winter. She has held this year event every year for 20 years. A number of people from the community volunteer their time to come in and serve as judges. Some of the judges this year were business people, a YSU professor, engineers, and people who just love science! Mrs. Marie Brooke served as one of the judges for this year's Science Fair. She stated,' I was impressed with the variety of topics and the quality of the boards at the Science Fair.' She also noted that several students did their experiment multiple times to compare their results to prove their hypothesis. Daniella's project was titled, 'Does color affect taste?' The purpose of Daniella's experiment was to determine if the color of a given food changes the way it tastes to a person. Daniella's hypothesis was the following, 'My hypothesis for performing this experiment was that I felt color would affect taste. I believe this to be true because when a person looks at food, they use other senses besides taste to determine which foods are most appealing to them.' On winning the Best of Show, the project judged with the highest number of points, Daniella Patrone states, 'I was grateful to win because there were many great projects and we all worked so hard. My first science fair was a lot of fun!' Pictured is Eskay with Daniella Patrone, who is holding her Superior Award plaque and Best of Show plaque.
