The Lifegate Christian School fellowship hall was filled with wall-to-wall displays as a part of the school’s Science Fair, with all students from kindergarten to 12th grade participating with exhibits.

Principal Gerard Lopez recognized the efforts of his students and said, “Lifegate holds science fair every other year for the entire school. We saw some amazing research and creativity this year. The greatest gift is seeing how each student shows God’s creation displayed or explained in their scientific research.”

Kindergarten students completed a class project on bees, while the first grade studied germs. The second-grade class project focused on fingerprints. Students in higher grades each did an individual project.

Champions were selected by the judges in three groups.

In grades three through five, Charles Soefje’s “Grow Bunny Grow” was named Elementary School Champion. His display showed how a rabbit grew based on the foods it ate.

For grades six through eight, Steele Sullivan earned the Middle School Champion award. His exhibit, “Which Soil is the Most Stable,” showed the weight-bearing loads of different types of soil.

In grades nine through 12, Kenny Cramblitt’s exhibit, “Slip Sliding Away,” earned the High School Champion award. His display demonstrated the frictional forces between surfaces.

Winners include:

Third grade -- Sarinna Skrzycki, Sunny Knight, and GraceAnne Weaver.

Fourth grade -- Charles Soefje, Hanah Osborne, and Austin Weaver.

Fifth grade -- Lilian Haltom, Kaleb Knox, and Conley Boatright

Sixth grade -- Elizabeth Weaver, Myles Beicker, and Rosemary Cramblitt

Seventh grade -- Sierra Knight, Trey Osborne, and Karlee Coffman

Eighth grade -- Steele Sullivan, Garrett Weaver, and Kailey Tracy

Ninth grade -- Daniel Fiedler, Ruth Cramblitt, and Sidney Knight

10th grade -- Caleb Dodson, Trenton Cleveland, and Kolten Soefje

11th grade -- Kenny Cramblitt, Rachel Cramblitt, and Savannah Knight

12th grade -- Tyler Swisher, Hunter Hewell, and Chris Tracy.
