Hillcrest Elementary Grade 4 student Isaac MacDonald with his
exhibit on what caused the Deepwater Horizon oil spill and fire. Isaac was
inspired after watching a movie on the disaster.
More than 120 science exhibits and about 200 students intrigued and entertained shoppers and judges at Surrey's Central City Shopping Centre in the 50th-annual Surrey School District Science Fair.
Students from Grade 4-8 demonstrated knowledge on many diverse topics; including "Mapping Acceleration Patterns to Maximise Golf Swing Speed", "13 Moons of the First People" and "Microwaves and Organisms".
A handful of students were invited to present their projects at the next Surrey Board of Education public meeting on March 9:
Hammad Kafi, Grade 6, Dr. F.D. Sinclair Elementary - Tesla Coil
Karman Gill, Grade 7, Cedar Hills Elementary - Microwaves and Organisms
Angelyca Purewal, Grade 7, Erma Stephenson Elementar - Impacts of Rising Acidity
Thomas and Jacob Mencl, Grades 4 and 6, Sunnyside Elementary - Best Foot Angle for Kicking a Soccer Ball

The board meeting takes place at 7 p.m. at the District Education Centre, 14033 92 Ave.
Though she described the public event as "nerve-wracking", Surrey Centre Elementary Grade 5 student Nadia Sjaus provided an engaging presentation on of the physics behind the strength of beams.
