After a two-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the annual Science Fair at Cunha Intermediate School returned with students, parents, and volunteer judges in attendance. The 2020-21 school year went remote in early spring 2020, making the science fair an optional project with only 10 participants. Since then, students presented their projects through a powerpoint slideshow.
This year’s fair was considered a “return to normal” by Cunha science teacher Kurt Murray, who expressed excitement at bringing the community back to the event. The poster boards at the fair showcased a variety of scientific studies, ranging from testing the strength of different brands of dental floss to whether teachers could distinguish assignments written by students or artificial intelligence.
The event was captured by Coastside News Group photographer Anna Hoch-Kenney, and the gallery is available for viewing. The return to in-person science fair presentations was a significant milestone for Cunha Intermediate School and the community.
