Learning Bridge held their very successful  2018 Science Fair in March with over 100 science boards and inventions displayed. Learning Bridge is very thankful for the support of White Pine County and the agencies who judged the fair.

Beal Bank USA, sponsors the Southern Nevada Regional Science and Engineering Fair. Beal Bank promotes an interest in mathematics and scientific studies in Clark County.

This event was held at UNLV, and hosted by UNLV College of Science.

There were over 800 science and inventions displayed in Las Vegas this past week. The projects entered into the fair, had to be winners in the different Clark County Schools. Learning Bridge participated in this fair for the first time and received six awards. Mrs. Krch stated, “That this was such a great achievement for such a small school in Central Nevada.”

First Place winner Maegan Fuller has been invited to attend a special awards dinner just for 1st place winners.

The event will be held in Las Vegas later his month where she will receive a trophy for her achievement.

Mrs, Krch stated, “That she is extremely proud of the students, teachers parents and administration who continue to support students in the scientific process. Organizing and completing a science project or an invention truly involves, reading, research, writing, math, science and critical thinking which defines learning across the curriculum.”

She also stated, “That she has been involved with the science fair for over thirty years. First at the school level, district level and state level.

I have been involved with and have always attended the Northern Nevada Science and Engineering Expo in Reno however in August of this last year it was decided by long time coordinator George Ochs and his committee to discontinue the Northern Nevada Fair.  I knew of the Southern Nevada fair so I contacted the director and was told that Learning Bridge could participate in that fair.”

Mrs, Krch also wants to thank her committee members:  Bernadette Lister Learning Bridge’s seventh grade teacher and Tami Bybee 4th grade teacher and 1st grade teacher, Ms Tokerud.

A special thanks to Mrs Lister and family for transporting the boards to Las Vegas and back.
