Two Pre-AP Biology students from North Lamar High School were winners at the East Texas Regional Science Fair in Kilgore on February 27. Bailey Fowler won the Water Environment Association of Texas and Texas Water Utilities Association Award and the Association of Women Geoscientists Award. Heather Armstrong received 9th place in the High School Biological Category which earns her the opportunity to compete in San Antonio at the Exxon Mobil Texas Science and Engineering Fair.
The two were joined by eight other finalists from North Lamar at the regional science meet after presenting their semester research projects in a Research Symposia at the high school. The students investigated various topics of interest then designed qualitative or quantitative studies before presenting their findings to their peers. Pre-AP Biology Instructors for these students are Shannon Ausmus and Teresa Bussell.
