Please congratulate 7th graders Sophia, Lauren, Flannery, and 8th grader Tessa for participating in last month’s State Science and Engineering Fair. Approximately 2500 6th-12th grade students participated in regional science fairs across the state. These four Friends School of Minnesota girls were chosen at the Twin Cities Regional Science Fair to proceed to the state fair.

Extra congratulations are in order for Flannery who won several awards including an award for submitting one of the best 7th grade research papers and a bronze metal for her poster (top 30% of participants). Tessa also was called up for several awards including an award for one of the best 8th grade research papers and a gold medal for her poster (top 5% of participants).
