Back in March, Kraemer Middle School student Sarina Haque received the first place award for her project “Not So Fresh Water” in the 68th Annual Orange County Science and Engineering Fair (OCSEF), held on March 19 at Chapman University. This earned her a chance to compete in the California Science & Engineering Fair in mid-April, where she earned third place in the toxicology category!
The California Science & Engineering Fair is the final science fair of the academic year for students throughout the State of California in grades 6 – 12, serving California’s future scientists and engineers since 1952. The fair is hosted by the California Science Center.
Judging interviews of all projects in the 72nd annual California Science & Engineering Fair were held on Tuesday, April 11, 2023. This year there were 896 participants from 351 schools throughout the State who presented 743 projects in competition for awards totaling over $60,000.
Excellent work, Sarina!
