Holy Family School held its annual Science Fair on Tuesday, March 26 in the Parish Hall. All students in seventh and eighth grade participated in this event. Projects ranged from a potato catapult, a bath bomb study, wind turbines, an electrolyte challenge, and much more. Eighth grade students Patrick Dambrogio and Christopher Philibin tied for Best of Show. Christopher Philibin's project was titled "Turning Milk Into Plastic."

"My project was fun to turn milk into plastic and I actually had fun learning some cool stuff about science," Chris said. "It was pretty awesome having real science people judging our projects. I actually was able to answer all their scientific questions."

Patrick Dambrogio's project was titled, "Rusting Out". It was about what causes corrosion and if the paint can stop it. It was to explain why they paint metal on bridges now. Dambrogio said, "The Science Fair was a great learning opportunity. I was able to follow the steps of the scientific method to complete a real life experiment. It was a lot of fun."
