The 66th Annual MSSEF was held last weekend at M.I.T Seniors Rachael Holappa and Madison Poore won third place for their research on The Effects of BPA on the Regeneration Rate of Lumbriculus Variegatus. They competed with 300 other top projects from across the state and won The MSSEF Science and Technology 3rd Place Award, and The 2015 Prentice Hall Book Award.
It was a very competitive fair this year; the girls were at M.I.T. all day last Friday, and were interviewed by “5 individual judges whose professional careers and/or educational backgrounds parallel the respective project category.” It was a rigorous assessment, and we’re very proud of them!
After a full day of judging on Friday 5/1st, the students were invited to a dinner dance (Stratton Student Center) at M.I.T.
Congratulations Rachel and Madison!!
