Winners advance to the state science fair March 17-18 in Missoula. Area high school students converge on their science fair March 11 at Tech.

More than 480 young students from 24 schools in southwest Montana converged on Montana Tech Monday for the annual Montana Tech Regional Division II Science Fair.

The top 15 projects receive an all-expense paid three-day trip with Clark Fork Watershed Educational Program.

The winners are Carson Barry, Silver Bow Montessori School; Dylan Yerbich and Kameron Elliot, Ennis School; Easton Hatfield, Townsend Middle School; Hayden Allen, West Elementary; Jackson Raecke, Chief Joseph Middle School; Jyler Thompson, Townsend Middle School; Katherine Seesel, Chief Joseph Middle School; Lucas Hamling, Chief Joseph Middle School; Lucy Rath, Chief Joseph Middle School; Paige Dull, Chief Joseph Middle School; Peyton Vogl, Townsend Middle School; Pushya Krishna, Chief Joseph Middle School; and Reece Cox, Hillcrest Elementary, Trinity Berry, Butte Central Schools, and Zach Boyd, Three Forks Middle School.

The fair focuses on student interest in science.

“The projects exhibited at the fair are captivating and provide a great starting point for students to get more involved with science and engineering,” said fair director Kehli Hazlett.

Tech’s fair is one of the five regional fairs in Montana.

“Students who compete at Montana Tech Regional Science Fair have a great chance of being recognized for their scientific efforts because the Butte community and Southwestern Montana is so wonderful at supporting this fair,” said Bernie Phelps, judge chairman.

    A lot less plagiarism this year. Projects about rust and dryer sheets have been recycled for years and have been handed down each year.
