In addition to receiving this award, Matt and four other middle school students from Minnesota were invited to attend DiaSorin’s STEM Day.
During the last week of school at Metcalf Middle, students were given an opportunity to take their shoes off for some science fun! For 6th grade science, student standards are for physical science. In order to better understand matter and properties such as elasticity, students were able to run across a kiddie pool of oobleck which is a non-Newtonian fluid.
Metcalf 8th grader Ellie Scheldberg was invited to present at the 2018 3M Young Innovators Conference, held on May 4 at 3M's main headquarters in Maplewood, Minn. The conference showcased the top awarded science fair projects from the 2018 Minnesota State Science Fair.
