School board honors science fair winners

The Coweta County Board of Education honored two Georgia Science and Engineering Fair (GSEF) winners at its recent meeting. Student Ansley Marlowe - a 7th grade Arnall Middle School student - was honored for her 1st place win in the state fair's junior division in environmental sciences , and for winning the University of Georgia Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resource Junior Division. Marlowe's project was in "Vermicomposting," which involves using worms to turn organic trash into high-quality compost. Northgate High 11th grade student Chad Ramey was also honored for a number of wins at the science meet, including GSEF's Special Recognition Top Ten Award, the Georgia Academy for Science, Math, and Engineering 'Student of Promise' Award, the University of Georgia's Department of Physics and Astronomy Special Award, and a 2nd Place overall placing in the fair's Physical Sciences Senior Division. Ramey's project was entitled "Furthering the Farnsworth Fusor." The Farnsworth Fusor is an early model of a fusion reactor developed in the 1960's, and Ramey's project demonstrated methods to improve the efficiency of the fusor. The Georgia Science and Engineering Fair was held April 1-3 at the University of Georgia Campus in Athens. The Coweta students were among seven Coweta County students who competed with nearly 700 other projects from across the state.
The students had participated in the Coweta County School System District Science Fair earlier in the year, competing with 65 local science projects. 20 of those projects qualified for the West Georgia Regional Science Fair at the University of West Georgia, and the seven Coweta projects qualified there for the Georgia Science and Engineering Fair.
