The Greater San Diego Science and Engineering Fair allows 7th to 12th grade students to explore topics in 16 different science and engineering categories. Students design and conduct an experiment-based project that they then must present to judges and the general public.
This year Killian Lozach, an 8th grader, represented SDFAS at the GSDSEF between March 15th and 19th. Killian is very interested in saltwater aquarium, marine environments and the organisms that inhabit them. He developed a project that examined the effects of calcium and alkalinity on corals that he had in different tanks. Killian entered his project into the environmental sciences and management junior division (middle school) category. After competing at the school fair and a qualifying fair just to be qualified to enter the GSDSEF, Killian’s project went on to take third place overall in his category.
This is a wonderful accomplishment for Killian and we are very proud of his interest and efforts. Congratulations and we’ll be looking for more great projects in the future!
