The science fair season at Cunha Intermediate School has come to a close, marking a significant milestone for the school and the community. This year’s event saw a return to in-person presentations after two years of remote fairs and virtual submissions.
Cunha science teacher Kurt Murray expressed excitement about bringing the community back to the event. He considered this year’s fair a “return to normal.” The poster boards at the fair showcased a variety of scientific studies, ranging from testing the strength of different brands of dental floss to whether teachers could distinguish assignments written by students or artificial intelligence.
The event was captured by Coastside News Group photographer Anna Hoch-Kenney, and the gallery is available for viewing. The return to in-person science fair presentations was a refreshing change from the previous two years of remote fairs and virtual submissions.
