Harding science teacher Ann Pesta put a new and modern twist on the age-old science fair presentation. Pesta went digital. All of the Harding eighth graders who completed a science fair project filmed their presentations, then Pesta – with some help from a tech-savvy relative - created a web site to showcase all of them.

The presentations are broken down by project numbers. Besides the students’ presentation, each project has links to the presentation slides the research paper that accompanies the project and the judges’ worksheet on the project. All the judging was also submitted online through the web site, which allowed for judges from outside the region to participate.

The top 12 highest scoring projects move on to the Northeast Ohio Science & Engineering Fair in March. Representing Harding will be: Kim Banak (Project #36), Emma Carson (#3), Ava Clause (#5), Halina Dreger (#18), Grace Gill (#20), Cora Johnson (#7), Cameron Levis (#8), Sean O’Donnell (#10), Stephanie Shaffer (#27), Audrey Stahl #12), Julia Szentkiralyi (#30) and Jake Wright (#14). Garfield Middle School will also be sending a contingent to the science fair. Garfield eighth graders Evan Bell, Brier Bracken, and Emma Hirsch will represent their school.
