Science Fair Press Release
Chester High School held its annual science fair and expo on Monday June 3rd. Entries focused on many subjects including culinary arts, biology, chemistry, physical science, cosmetology, botany, and biochemistry. Projects were submitted by students of all grade levels and abilities and were judged by Associate Principal Ms. Linda Hargrow and Project GRAD campus coordinators Ms. Yvette Dickenson and Nafatari Manigault. The expo was coordinated by Dr. Delores Wright and the Science Department under the advisement of Assistant to the Superintendent Dr. Rachel Foster and Chester High School Principal Mr. Will Towson.
The winning projects from this year’s science fair will be eligible for the Delaware Country Science Fair. The best displays will be presented at the Delaware Valley Science Fair which showcases projects from Pennsylvania, Delaware and New Jersey.
