"Medina Sunrise Rotary is honored to be invited back this year to judge the St. Francis Xavier School Science Fair," stated Dr. Reid Miller.  Along with Judy Cross, David Lariviere, Dr. Dennis Kowalski, and Dr. David Loeper, the Rotarians joined eight other local judges in the highly competitive Ohio Academy of Science program for students in the 6th, 7th and 8th grades.

Mrs. Christina Bresnahan, Middle School Science Teacher, has supervised the Science Fair for 15 years at St. Francis Xavier School, which has been named a National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence, Winner of the 2015 Innovations in Catholic Education Award, and 2015 & 2017 Recipient of the Thomas Edison Governor's Award for STEM Education.

"Beginning in October, the 137 Science Fair projects began to take shape as an integral part of the popular science curriculum," said Mrs. Bresnahan.  St. Francis Xavier School is proud to be among those schools which continue to submit its top students to the Regional, Invitational, and State Science Fair competitions in the following categories: physics, behavioral science, biology & microbiology, chemistry, botany, earth science, mathematics & probability, zoology, and engineering.
