Earlier this month, 58 Rhoades 7th and 8th graders competed at the 2019 Greater San Diego Science and Engineering Fair. New this year to the Junior Division (Grades 6-8) was the opportunity to participate in teams.
Rhoades student accomplishments include:
39 students won first place (16 teams and 7 individuals; 23 projects)
15 students won second place (5 teams and 5 individuals; 10 projects)
4 students won third place (2 teams; 2 projects)
In total, 89 projects advance to the state competition; 59 of these projects are Junior Division.
In the end, of the 59 Junior Division projects which qualified for the state competition, the California Science and Engineering Fair, 15 projects were Rhoades students, more than any other middle school in the county. Advancing to the state are 10 team projects and 5 individual projects; we also have one team and one individual that are state alternates.
Lastly, 24 students (10 teams and 4 individuals) are eligible to apply to the national contest, the Broadcom MASTERS, and our students also received 45 professional awards.
We wish our students headed off to state in late April the best of luck.
