CAMDEN — A trio of eighth-graders have won awards in Camden Middle School’s recent Science and Math Fair.
Skylar Parks won first place in the biological sciences category for her investigation of the Golden Ratio. Parks used survey data from her peers to determine if their perception of beauty was supported by mathematics.
Peyton Carver won first place in the physics category for her investigation of how angles influence the distance a softball will travel. Carver was able to model her findings using a device she built to launch marbles from different angles.
Tristan Spencer won second place in chemistry for his study of popcorn that showed which brand pops the most kernels.
Receiving honorable mention at the Jan. 16 science fair were eighth-graders Kennasiana McPherson, Rebecca Infinger and Allison Sherman.
The first-place winners will advance to the Regional Science Fair at East Carolina University in Greenville on Feb. 16.
