Winning Ways in Science!

April 11, 2018

Science Fair Elementary UNLV Henderson International School

Hundreds of projects from across Southern Nevada were submitted to the UNLV Elementary Science Fair, all of which had been selected to represent their respective schools.  The competition was fierce.   Our HIS judges determined that six of our students’ projects would be entered to compete.  Chris and Gavin placed 3rd in the third grade division!  Well done!  Their project, entitled “Will It Survive an Earthquake”, dazzled the judges.  The boys used an earthquake simulator that could test structures of varying heights.  The structures were made of Legos.  Their idea was original, and the accolades they received well deserved!  Pictured here are Chris and Gavin with the Director of the UNLV Science Fair.  We can’t wait for next year's competition!
