NDES holds science, engineering fair
On Jan. 23, 252 Notre Dame Elementary School students in first- through eighth-grades participated in the 21st Annual Science and Engineering Fair hosted at NDES. Preparation for the science fair began in early fall with the selection of a topic. Students worked independently on their projects and were monitored by their science teacher at various check-in dates. All projects were displayed and judged at the Science Fair.
Students who qualify will compete in the Northeastern Ohio Science and Engineering Fair at Cleveland State University and the Western Reserve District 5 Science Day at the University of Akron.
Student receives Disney grant
Notre Dame Elementary School eighth-grader Madyson Treharne of Burton is one of 270 young leaders awarded the Disney Summer of Service grant through Youth Service America. The grant will support Madyson in leading a community service project that addresses the issue of clothing the less fortunate.
Her idea entitled “Project Leave Behind” is a service activity that will take place at hotels.
“When you stay at hotel, you leave behind the clothes you wear on vacation to be donated to different clothing charities that benefit the homeless or less fortunate,” Madyson said.
Madyson, along with other winners, is awarded a $500 grant to organize projects that will make their communities healthier, greener and stronger. Grantees will educate and mobilize their peers around the issue of the less fortunate and create solutions to give more than you take through awareness service, advocacy and philanthropic activities.
