Congrats to Science Fair Winners

On February 1st at the Hiller Aviation Museum, there was an exhibition of all of the San Mateo County Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Fair for both Middle Schools and High Schools. This year there were over 300 projects from 54 schools, and San Carlos students were well represented. I had a chance to go to the exhibition, and there were some very impressive projects (there were a few that frankly I struggled to understand)! The County Office of Education hosted this event, and judges gave out awards for the best projects in various categories.

San Carlos students did extremely well — 14 of our students (from Central and Tierra Linda) won awards, including 9 first place awards, 1 second place award, 3 finalists, and 1 honorable mention. Congratulations again to all of our students who participated!
