Teachers, students, administrators and staff of Covenant Christian Academy hosted the learning institution’s first-ever science expo Oct. 19, featuring projects on a wide range of topics — from geysers to blood circulation to bacteria to rock crystals.
More than 65 students participated by presenting experiments, sharing research studies, showing off insect collections, teaching others how to raise chickens and explaining ways to avoid mosquitos.
Elementary Principal Steve Kennedy said it was “an amazing start to what we hope will be an annual community event for our school.”
He also spoke highly of the parent planning team that put the event together and complimented students on their “excitement about doing the projects and the depth of research.”
Special presenters included Carrie Hamilton, clinical pharmacist at Northside Hospital, and Jacob Andrews who shared his passion for drones.
The event also included a pumpkin toss, with parents launching a barrage of pumpkins into the night. Prizes were awarded for the competition.
Covenant Christian Academy is located at 6905 Post Road, Cumming.
