Eighty-five seventh and eighth graders prepared 38 exhibits. Winners advance to the district at ONU in March where they may qualify for the state in Columbus in May.

The Science Fair makes learning a happy occasion, if the interest shown by the students is any indication.

Alayne Schrock, seventh and eighth grade science teacher, said there were several engineering projects, probably the result of ONU engineering students mentoring Ada students.
