Seventh grade students Katherine Kali and Anthony Fire, who tied for Best of Show in the school science fair at Holy Family last week, impressed judges with their entries.
Katherine Kali's science fair project was entitled ''Shattered.'' She experimented with different types of glass to see which type would easily shatter and which ones would be more difficult to break. Katherine studied the different types of glass and learned that some contained plastic which made that type of glass much more durable and difficult to shatter.
In Anthony Fire's project, ''A Battery Worth Buying,''a multimeter was used to see which pennies and nickels would produce an electric current. He measured the voltage for each. Anthony then repeated this method using stacks of coins with white vinegar and apple cider vinegar.

Seventh-graders Katherine Kali and Anthony Fire won Best of Show in the recent science fair at Holy Family School.
Holy Family seventh and eighth grade students participating in the school's fair were rated second place, first place or superior. The Best of Show projects were chosen among the superior ranked projects.
The students created their projects under the direction of science instructor Charlotte Eskay.
