For the first time, BHS students entered the United States Crystal Growing Competition and came away with a national Top-10 ranking and multiple Honorable Mention awards.
The United States Crystal Growing Competition is an important scientific outreach activity designed to provide K-12 grade students and teachers a fun, hands-on STEM experience as well as an exciting competition. The objective is to grow the biggest and highest quality single crystal using materials that are provided to entrants by the organization. The contest receives crystals grown by students from across the United States, and judges recently announced the winners at the K-8 and 9-12 levels.
BHS teachers Dr. Barbara Stewart and Mrs. Kari White embedded the development of student submissions in their Honors Chemistry courses.
