OLA Students Elias Arredondo and Oscar Picciano completed science fair projects and entered them into the 68th Annual San Luis Valley Regional Science Fair, one of the most competitive science fairs in the state.
In his project, Home Security With a Cambot, Oscar designed, built, and wrote most of the computer code for a remote-controlled cambot that live-streamed video from anywhere in one room to the user controlling the cambot from another room. Oscar earned the following awards:
- 3rd Place - Middle School Engineering
- Honorable Mention - Middle School Oral Presentation
In his project, Fish Fertilizer: The Correlation Between Fish and Foliage, Elias tested the effect of various concentrations of water from aquariums containing fish populations on plants grown in an aquaponic setting. Elias earned the following awards:
- Military Award
- 1st Place - Middle School Botany
- Overall Middle School Award (Best Middle School Project)
- State Award (A trip to compete in the Colorado Science and Engineering Fair in Fort Collins in April)
Good job, Oscar and Elias!
And many thanks to their hard-working and supportive sponsor, Ms. Davey.
