Lyndon Town students take top honors at Science Fair


TOP HONOR AT SCIENCE FAIR --Sixth-grade students in Cassandra Saikin's science classes and eighth-grade students in Travis Courser's science classes, both representing Lyndon Town School, took top honors in the Science Fair held at Lyndon State College on April 27. Sixth-grader Caitlin Hagget won first place for the load-bearing robot she designed and built that negotiated through a maze. Eighth-graders Drew Dudas and Connor McClure, with their power-generating water wheel, tied fellow eighth-grader Cameron Raymond with his solar-conducting panels that heated a model house. Cameron was thrilled that the LTS students did so well, "since we haven't won in a while!" Connor was pleased that "we got to show others how hard we had worked." Saikin said, "I was really excited to hear that Caitlin had won. She put in a ton of effort; all the LTS kids really stepped it up today!" Caitlin's final comment: "Hard work really does pay off!" Shown with their projects are, from left, Caitlin Haggett, Cameron Raymond, Drew Dudas and Connor McClure.
