DOBSON — Technology has had an impact on many facets of life and the Surry County School’s annual District Science Fair is no exception. Science Fair Coordinator and County Curriculum assistant Charlotte Hiatt characterized this change as the projects moving away from presentation to experiment presentation and she says Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) supports this.


“Technology has allowed students to dig deeper,” said Hiatt. “We had a lot more participation than we have in previous years. I believe STEM is inspiring more kids to use engineering and math in their science projects. The fair is going in a new direction with more detailed demonstration than in the past.” She said the event which was held at Meadowview Middle School last week also had more participants due in part to more teams of three persons being allowed to enter.


“We had 30 judges this year which is more than we usually have because we had 26 more projects with 104 more students participating,” said Hiatt.


She said the group Mad Science of the Piedmont, which brings science-themed entertainment to schools was on hand to perform for the hour and a half judging part of the fair to keep the estimated 300 students and parents attending even more to focus on.


Regional competition will be hosted by Appalachian State University this year. Hiatt said the school system is excited to have a day of college experiences offered to its students who may tour the campus during any down time in the regional fair. All first and second place students will promote to the Regional Science Fair on Dec. 17 at Appalachian State University. The results of the fair are as follows:
