Boston Seventh Graders are Science Fair Winners Martina Albin of Dorchester and Samantha Pierre-Louis of Hyde Park won Second Place at the seventh grade Newton Country Day School of the Sacred Heart 20th Annual Science Fair. Seventh graders follow the scientific method to complete experiments that involve biology; and life, consumer, and general sciences. Albin and Pierre-Louis, both Steppingstone Foundation graduates, next will present their winning project at the Middle School Region V Fair at Regis College on April 25. Regional winners then move on to the Massachusetts State Middle School Science and Engineering Fair on June 6 at Worcester Technical High School. Albin and Pierre-Louis teamed with classmate, Charlotte Barton of Newton, to present a research and experimentation project titled “With Gain, No Stain” before a series of judges from the science and engineering community. Their experiments determined which of five brands of laundry detergent removes the most of a Smucker’s Concord Grape jam stain from both 100% cotton and 60% cotton-40% polyester fabrics. Their results showed that the detergent Gain with Febreeze removed more stain than the other tested brands.
