WSR second grade teacher Winnifred Cabrera said students Keiza Mallari, Aldric Antonio, Ulrich Servito, Evan Cabrera, and Alyana Rotap garnered the highest scores for their science projects during the WSR STEM Fair, and will represent the school in the CNMI competition.

Cabrera said the WSR students started working on their projects in December.

Each classroom conducted its own Science Fair, she added. “The teacher then graded each project and the student whose project received the highest score competed with the top projects from the other classrooms.”

Cabrera said, “A lot of our students this year were very [well] prepared. They were all interested in their projects and could respond to any questions. As soon as judges came around, the students [started] sharing how their projects came along.”

There were 28 projects in the general science category during the school-wide competition, she added.
