Foremost Science Fair Success

Foremost Science Fair Success

Prairie Rose School Division would like to congratulate Foremost students Jordan Kurtzweg and Linsey Brower for performance at the Kiwanis Southeast Regional Science Fair on March 24, 2018. 

Grade 8 student Linsey Brower received the Minerva award for her project “Will Peas Grow in Coffee Grounds?” and won for the best junior high female entry.  Grade 9 student Jordan Kurtzweg won the silver medal in the Intermediate division for his project focused on renewable energy called “Turbines: It’s a Wind Win”.  He also won one of the three grand prizes that includes an all expense paid trip to Ottawa attend the Canada-Wide Science Fair Competition in May.

“Jordan’s project was quite applicable to the way our government’s energy policies are pointing, so I encouraged him to run with it,” said Foremost Science teacher Dana Marshall. “Travelling to the Canada-Wide Science Fair in Ottawa will certainly open his eyes and broaden his horizons for a future in the sciences.  We are so proud of both Linsey and Jordan.”

In addition to competing in the National Science Fair Competition, Jordan will also spend time visiting educational sites and learning about the nation’s capital during the week-long trip.
