Each year, more than 75,000 students throughout Southern Arizona create research projects in science and engineering. About 1,800 projects, representing more than 4,000 students, are chosen to compete at the TCC — and from there, Southern Arizona Research, Science, and Engineering Foundation (SARSEF) select the “best of the best” to honor. Over 400 judges and volunteers assist with choosing the winning projects.
Tucson Hebrew Academy students crafted presentations that would challenge themselves to think critically and problem solve through hands-on research. The exceptional work our students did allowed them to place in multiple categories.
First grade won second place for To Wash or Not to Wash in the category of cellular and microbiological science. Our second-grade students questioned, Does the viscosity of a liquid affect absorption? They achieved third place in the chemical science category. Lastly, third grade landed third place for the Insulation Station, in the physics, astronomy and mathematics category.
Students received ribbons commensurate to their exceptional work and the school received a trophy for each class, pictured here. Mazel Tov to our THA scientists!
