Major kudos to Bosco Tech freshmen Patrick Jackson and Michael Garcia who presented their project at this year’s Los Angeles County Science & Engineering Fair on March 18. Their project, Transforming Plants, earned them third place in the category of Plant Biology, as well as an opportunity to present their project at the California State Science & Engineering Fair. The team originally performed the experiment for the Bosco Tech science fair and was awarded a tying spot for third place. In addition to the freshmen who competed, Tech science instructor Mrs. Nina Luna served as a judge of Ecology projects at the event.
“I am proud to have all of them representing the school,” said Science Chair Eric Tom. “Patrick and Michael created a sound experiment, presented their data well, and back it up with thorough research. Their excellent work in all three aspects of a science fair project won them well-deserved recognition.”
The LA County Science Fair is the largest and oldest of its kind in the western U.S. More than 1,100 students participated in the event, held at the Pasadena Convention Center.
