Students show off skills at annual science fair

By Angela Cesere

Washtenaw Community College hosted the 53rd Annual Southeast Michigan Science Fair on Friday and Saturday, showcasing a variety of individual and team projects from students throughout the region.

Photographer Angela J. Cesere captured these images:

The event was sponsored by the University of Michigan and Washtenaw Community College in cooperation with public and private schools in Livingston, Washtenaw, Monroe, Hillsdale and Lenawee counties. The regional Southeastern Michigan Science Fair is affiliated with the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair.

Students competed on individual and team projects in high school and middle school divisions. For more information about the fair, see its website.

I assume there were a lot of great projects, as KJMClark says, and that some students were honored for their work. Too bad the story doesn't report on these. Just--as usual--uncaptioned photos, so that even those photographed remain unnamed and their activities unexplained. One of the most irritating things about this site, the routine absence of photo captions.

Wow! I wasn't aware of that feature either, Tony. Thanks for the info. Too bad I've been missing so much!

Dave, when you watch a photo gallery, display it full screen, and then in the upper right hand corner of your screen, look for the a prompt that says "Show info.'' Click on that, and the photo caption will display with each photo.

We were down there this afternoon picking up my daughter's project. There were a lot of terrific exhibits. I particularly liked the ones involving perception and reactions. But one shoe with a kind of generator tube attached to it was really cool. Great job to all the students who did projects!
