Meet the 2006 Science Fair Award Winners

The Berkeley Pit Education Committee awarded $50 savings bonds to five grade school students and a $250 bond to one high school student who competed in the 2006 Montana Tech Science and Engineering Fair. Each of their Fair projects (see below) explored important topics related to the Berkeley Pit and mine waste cleanup technologies. Congratulations to everyone who competed in the Fair, and keep up the good work! Remember, the Committee will offer awards again at the 2007 Science Fair, and students are encouraged to choose projects related to the Pit and mine waste cleanup for next year’s competition.

(Note: There were no 5th grade projects about the Berkeley Pit this year so we awarded two for 6th grade.)
