NCS students do well at science fair

Norwalk Catholic School Junior High students were extremely successful at this year's regional Science Fair competition held at Heidelberg College. Eleven students were invited back to Heidelberg College for Scholarship Day. They were Patrick Kaple, Justin Stoll, Alex Rospert, Allyson Lippert, Deanna Bradt, Trevor Young, Kirsten Bundschuh, Andrew Dow, Brad Metcalfe, Lexi Hipp and Shawn Dankelson.

These students excelled again on scholarship day taking home the top prize awarded, three additional superior ratings, two of which received $50 savings bonds, and seven excellent ratings. "The accomplishments of these students are amazing. The quality of their projects was outstanding", said Susan Hershiser, science teacher.

Brad Metcalfe, eighth-grade student, won the George and Evelyn Cranch Scholarship to any college in the United States. This $800 scholarship is awarded to a student earning a superior at scholarship day who plans to pursue and dedicate themselves to engineering. Metcalfe's science fair project was titled "Snow Trap." Metcalfe said.

"I found that Heidelberg was a very exhilarating and challenging experience. Science fair opens your mind to explore so many new possibilities. You are surrounded by intelligent people." This was the second year Brad was invited to scholarship day at Heidelberg College.

Lexi Hipp and Kirsten Bundschuh also received superior ratings for their projects and each was awarded a $50 savings bond. The fourth superior rating was given to Alex Rospert. Norwalk Catholic School seventh-grade students Shawn Dankelson, Allyson Lippert, Patrick Kaple and Andrew Dow and eighth-graders, Justin Stoll, Trevor Young and Deanna Bradt received excellent ratings.
