East Clinton High School chemistry students participated in their first Believe in Ohio competition on Thursday, March 3. This program was founded by the Ohio Academy of Science in collaboration with Entrepreneurial Engagement Ohio.
Thirty-six ECHS students completed projects and 27 were judged at the school level.
Nine student winners will advance to the regional competition: Erica Hilton, Noah Morgan, Triston Moore, Olivia Wood, Ethan Cornwell, Blake Rhinehimer, Sydney Landrum, Carrie Pickering and Hannah Pickering.
Students designed a new product that would make a difference in their lives. They created a commercialization plan and presented their papers to community judges: Kent Walker, Patrick Ryan, Andrea Harpen, Josh Mullen, Betty Ann Walker, Pamela McCoy, Penny Kincaid, Jim Luck, Rebecca Walker, Andrew Bond, and Dr. Russell Kincaid.
Dr. Kincaid from Wilmington College is our EC’s STEM advocate. Chemistry teacher Jacalyn Walker took a one-day training course for this STEM program and included it as part of her chemistry curriculum this year.
