St. Amant Middle School sixth- and seventh-graders showed off their science skills May 20 during the school’s end-of-the-year science fair.

The fair was held to give students experience in working on a science fair project and encourage them for the school fair next year, a news release said. Seventh-graders compete for a spot in the LSU regional science fair.

Alexis Ardoin’s project titled “Music Type and Logical Thinking” won first place in the sixth-grade division. Jordan Simoneaux was second and Trey Web took third place.

In the seventh-grade division, Karlie Delhommer and Dallas Struppeck teamed up to present “Does Color Affect Heating Times.” They won first place. Mason Hammond was second and the entry by Tristen Robinson and Ashtyn Turner was third. Honorable mention went to Ethan Miller and Wesley Williams.

Judging the science fair were volunteers from Shell Geismar, Lofton Staffing, United Community Bank, St. Elizabeth Hospital, Hughes Insurance and Bourg Insurance.
