Congratulations to all of the John Bapst science students who participated in the Maine State Science Fair at Colby College Saturday, March 26, 2022. John Bapst had a record 18 participants this year with a diverse range of research projects and all did a great job at communicating their research to peers and judges. Thirteen students earned awards. Below is a full list of John Bapst students and their project titles and a list of those students recognized with awards and scholarships.
It is through the hard work and dedication of our teaching staff and students that brings us such success.
The Maine State Science Fair (MSSF) is an opportunity for Maine high school students to pursue their interest in science and engineering and present results of their projects to fellow students and expert STEM professionals. MSSF is open to all students from all public, private, parochial and home schools (grades 9-12) throughout Maine and is organized by The Jackson Laboratory and Reach, a program of the Maine Mathematics and Science Alliance.
