Advanced Science Research Students Advance to State

Breck’s Advanced Science Research (ASR) students competed in the Twin Cities Regional Science Fair last weekend. All of our ASR students’ papers advanced to the North Central Regional Junior Sciences and Humanities symposium. Senior Nathan DeMichaelis' paper, “Learning in the Living Room: What Skills Contribute to Success in Distance Learning?” took top honors. The paper by seniors Dominic Greco and Benjamin Kroul placed second.

All 21 of our students — a total of 13 projects and both in ASR and the research club — advanced to the Minnesota State Science and Engineering Fair, which will be held virtually at the end of March. Breck students took home a total of 11 special awards.

Seniors Fiona Kinney and Simren Samba were nominated to attend the International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) with their project, “Fruit Fly Frenzy: Investigating the Development of Insecticide Resistance in Drosophila melanogaster” in early May 2021.

Finally, the team of Amrit Menon '22 and Ivy Ferstan '22 earned the 3rd alternate spot to ISEF.
