On Saturday, February 27th, the commons area at Cedarcrest High School was filled to capacity with literally standing room only, as students, parents and community members observed the many ingenious projects on display for the annual Science and Engineering Fair.

In total there were 54 participants, and 38 projects this year. Science department chair and teacher Bruce Murdock stated, "As teachers at Cedarcrest we are all about providing kids with opportunities. We see the science fair as a chance for kids to pursue areas of scientific interest that are not possible in the regular classroom setting. We are very proud of what these students have accomplished this year."
