For many years, the A.R. Dykes Library has participated in the Greater Kansas City Science and Engineering Fair sponsored by Science Pioneers.
Dykes Library awards one prize in both the Junior and Senior categories. Only medically related projects (health, anatomy, vision, dentistry, psychology, etc.) in the Biological and Behavior Sciences categories from the Junior and Senior levels are judged.
This year’s winners include junior Ashley E. for her project “Don’t Flush the PH!” and senior Nathan W. for his project “Developing a PCR technique to determine the distribution of Lyme Disease in Johnson County, Kansas.”
The Senior division winner receives a one-year membership, which includes remote access to electronic resources. The winner in the Junior division receives eight hours of research consultation with a librarian and $50 of free printing.
Awards were presented March 16.
Congratulations Ashley and Nathan!
