Congratulations to Eskasoni Elementary and Middle School students for placing at the MKRSF which took place in We'koqma'q on April 11, 2019. We are so proud of you and of all those who attended.
EEMS students had two winning projects in the grade 7-9 division, with a 3rd winner being a former EEMS student coming from grade 9 at ABMHS.
Taking home the 1st place prize for her project "Responding to my Language" was Maria Alex. Maria received a cash prize of $100 for her first place win. This regional win qualifies her for the Canada-wide Science Fair that takes place May 15-17 in Fredericton, NB. This is Maria's second year in a row qualifying for the Canada-wide Science Fair. Awesome job, Maria!
Taking home the 2nd place prize for their project "Bacteria" were Joy Johnson and Maria Young. The team received a cash prize of $75 for their second place finish. In addition to their 2nd place win, Joy and Maria each received a $500 Public Health Scholarship to Cape Breton University. Way to go, girls!
To round out the 7-9 division, recent EEMS grad Chase Denny took home the 3rd place prize for his project "Flow State". The 3rd place finish earned him a $50 cash prize. Great work, Chase!
