Nearly 100 competitors representing grades 4 through 12 participated in the 58th annual Cumberland Plateau Regional Science and Engineering Fair this spring at the Millard Oakley STEM Center at Tennessee Tech University. The students were from more than 10 counties.
“I was very pleased with the level of exhibits on display during this year’s fair,” said Peter Li, director of the fair and professor of geography at TTU. “It is always exciting to see the discoveries that our students make in their research. I congratulate all of this year’s participants, award winners, their families and teachers.”
Faith Walker, a student at Crawford’s Wilson Elementary School, took first place in the mathematics category of the intermediate division, which comprises 4th through 6th grades. Jessie Wilson of Cookeville’ Sycamore Elementary took second and David Ryan Phillips from Livingston Middle School took third.
