The annual Northeast Ohio STEM Alliance Project Fair was held on Saturday, January 21, 2017, in the Kent State University Student Center Ballroom. Students in grades 5-12 participated from local area school districts. One of the students was Walls 5th grader, Adam Khan. Adam received a superior rating for his physics project, The Interaction of Light and Liquid Crystals. Adam received the STEM Star Award for placing in the top of the physics category and will advance to the Western Reserve District 5 Science Day to be held at The University of Akron in March.
“Kent City Schools is very proud of Adam for representing our district with the highest degree of distinction and for sharing his passion for STEM opportunities. Adam is the first elementary student, in our district, to be awarded this prestigious honor,” said Gifted Specialist & STEM Project Advisor, Chip Hawks.
