Thirty-five projects were presented at the recent science fair at the Lead-Deadwood High School, reports the Black Hills Pioneer. The science fair was revived by Dr. Bree Oatman after a decades-long absence. Students who participated in the science fair were instructed to choose a project with a chemical aspect to it. Projects ranged from testing the “five second rule,” ice fishing hole location, biodegradable plastic and more.
The fair was held in part for students to prepare for the regional science fair competition at the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology later this month. Mayor of Lead, Ron Everett, helped to judge the competition.
