Americus-Sumter High science students recently began their 2017 Science Fair season with a local competition held at the high school. From there, a total of six ASHS participants will proceed to the regional science fair at Darton State College: Daisha Roberts, Charlotte Schopen-Davis, Prerana Kumar, Jasmine Dew, Jennifer Lane, and Trenidee Sanford.

 The science fair allows students to put their skills and learning on display for others. According to Tiffany Robinson, Earth Science teacher at ASHS, “Participating in the science fair allows the students to demonstrate not only their knowledge and skills of science, but also knowledge and skills from other subjects such as math, English, and technology. This allows students to recognize the importance of education in everyday life.”

 Physical Science teacher Afrose Arshi believes science fairs are a great tool for recognizing academic achievement. “Science fair competitions allow students to practice communication skills, gain self-confidence, and feel a sense of accomplishment. Students learn problem-solving and critical-thinking life skills through questioning, researching, and experimentation. Science skills are life skills. Whatever we do in life, we are following the scientific method.”

 The Americus Sumter High School has a strong Science Fair program. The Science Fair involves a four-tier assessment, and participation is mandatory for all science students. Every science teacher chooses a best project, followed by a formal judging process during the annual school science fair. Students then move on to the regional science fair, then on to the state science fair (GSEF), and eventually to the International Science Fair (ISEF). In recent years ASHS has had several students to participate in the regional and state science fairs. In 2011 one ASHS student made it to the international science fair.
