Ten IPA middle school scientists among the 25 ISLAND PACIFIC ACADEMY students who competed at the Hawaiʻi Association of Independent Schools (HAIS) District Science Fair at Hanalani Schools this past Saturday, February 15, have advanced to the 2020 Hawaiʻi State Science & Engineering Fair (HSSEF). The HAIS District Fair includes students from all of the HAIS schools across Oʻahu, and is one of nine district fairs across the state, which narrow the large field of competitors down the few hundred that advance to the state fair.

The seven Junior Research projects that will move on to the 2020 HSSEF on April 8-10 at the Hawaiʻi Convention Center are:

  • Kai Alston ’25 and Trentton Banquil ’25 – “A Gamer’s Time Zone”
  • Kamiya Luchetti ’26 – “Testing Drinking Water”
  • Kai von Dohlen ’26 – “Magnetic Effect on Plant Growth”
  • Shastine Sirivattha ’25 and Ka’imipono Khim ’25 –”Biomass Energy”
  • Jacqueline Arvman ’26 –”Beach Clean Up and Solutions”
  • William Meyermann ’26 – “The Aerodynamics of Star Wars”
  • Gretchen Starke ’25 and Connor Koyano ’25 –”Radiation on Seeds”

 

The students will spend the next few weeks preparing for the state competition by practicing their oral presentations, and making final changes to their presentation boards.

Good luck, Navigators!
