Chemistry, Engineering, and Microbiology, Oh My!

Middle School scientists receive honors at Hillsborough Regional STEM Fair.

At the 41st Annual Hillsborough Regional STEM Fair, which was virtual this year, students from Carrollwood Day School's middle school division received three special awards, one memorial award, one third-place award, and two second-place awards. One student was selected to represent Team Hillsborough and is moving onto the FL State STEM Fair!
We are so proud of these students!
