News Release, St. Mary’s Ryken High School

Leonardtown, MD- Kuidong (Richard) Li and Wenrui (Reibel) Li, participated in the St. Mary’s County Science and Engineering Fair in late January and won first prize for the Resources Conservation & Development category. Both students will receive a monetary award. The title of their project was “Purer Water.”

Reibel said, “I thoroughly enjoyed seeing the other students’ projects. It inspired me to want to attend the fair again next year and create an even better project.”

The 2020 St. Mary’s County Science and Engineering Fair will be at Great Mills High School on Jan.2002, with a snow date of Feb. 2. The Science Fair is open to public, private, and home-schooled students in St. Mary’s County.

The science fair is an excellent venue for students to show their talents in experimental methodologies, engineering testing, and design and various scientific aspects of their projects. The Science Fair’s goal is to create an interest in science, mathematics, and engineering to offer an extraordinary learning experience for young people with the long-term goal of creating scientists, engineers, mathematicians, and computer scientists. The local Science Fair has a history of success. With the help of local businesses and people, the Science Fair board knows it can encourage many more students in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

St. Mary’s County Public Schools provides some support, but the overall support comes through donations from business organizations in the community. Business support provides awards, plaques, and certificates. It also helps to defer operating expenses, covers registration cost for students to compete in the Prince George’s Regional Fair and supports any entrants who advance to the Prince George’s Area Science Fair and the INTEL International Science Fair.
