Nea Student Receives Award in National Science Competition
Posted 09/07/2016 10:00AM

Nea 7th grade student, Shino Kawazu, has won a place as a semifinalist in the 2016 Broadcom MASTERS®, a program of Society for Science & the Public. This honor places her among the top 300 middle school science and engineering projects in the United States from over 6,000 nominees. Shino’s teacher, Daniel Pasker, inspired and assisted Shino with her science fair project.

“Working with Shino on her project titled, The Effect of the Position of Arms on How Well You Execute a Pirouette, was a great example of Nea’s project-based learning model”, said Mr. Pasker.  “ She not only incorporated math, science and engineering into her subject, but also used her language skills and passion for dance and the arts to complete a well-rounded project”, Daniel continued.  

The Broadcom MASTERS® (Math, Applied Science, Technology and Engineering for Rising Stars) rewards sixth, seventh and eighth grade students who follow their personal passions in science or engineering at 300 regional and state science fairs and inspires them to continue their studies in math and science throughout high school. As the students apply project-based learning to the scientific method and the engineering process through hands-on challenges and competitions, they learn the 21st century skills of critical thinking, collaboration, communication and creativity.
