Stem Fair

The stem fair happens every year, testing students on creating original projects or improving ideas in science, technology, engineering, and mechanics and more. 

There are a total of 11 categories they compete in for stem fair. Animal Science,Behavioral Science, Chemistry, Earth Science, Space Science, Energy Science, Engineering, Medical Help, Microbiology Physics and Plant science.

At Fremont, we had many good students compete and here is what owe placed for:

Lindely Richardson science fair project

Lindley Richards, who won 1st place in Behavioral Science, did her project on people’s biased influences on our voting habit’s. She did this by giving out surveys with the same neutral expression and a generic speech. She collected around 861 answers, but found issues with non-binary population not being big enough to be able to get data. Lindley Richards states that the population at Fremont is primarily white republicans, and if she were to redo the project, she would want a wider ethnicity and political beliefs. Her results conclude that males prefer male candaints and females prefer female candiants. Candidates that leaned independent and liberal preferred female candidates and republicans independents, and people who would prefer not to say preferred male candidates. Unfortunately not enough data was collected to be able tell if people were biased based on the ethnicity of the person. Lindley got the idea for this project because a lot of her classes were discussing personal biases.

Oliva Smith, who won in microbiology/cell biology with Nature Medicine, The point of her assignment was to see if natural biotics had an impact on bacterial growth. Due to synthetic biotics, aka chemical biotics, kill both good and bad germs, where natural biotics kills only bad germs. Olivia Smith did this project because she wanted to see if you could add this to your diet in order to boost your immune system, potentially preventing harmful bacterial growth. In order to test this theory she took solutions of both synthetic and natural solution’s in a petri dish of bacteria, and allowed for the bacteria to grow, the final step was to measure where bacteria did not grow. The study concluded that natural botics do prevent bacteria from growing. Oliva ran into issues when mixing her solutions. She did everything 50% except for honey which was 20% and believed that honey would have performed better in her experiment if the solution was 50%. Even with the solution only being 20%, honey did not do the worst. The worst performing biotic was ginger. The best performing biotic was synthetic called moximon, but next best was a natural one which was garlic.
