Contest brings out the scientist in Kankakee students
Kankakee has many budding scientists, at least that’s what a recent contest uncovered.
Students from the 5th/6th-grade taught by Tracy Selock at Kennedy Middle Grade School recently participated in the Marie Curie contest sponsored by the Math, Science and Engineering Division of Kankakee Community College, a release said.
Some 16 students submitted perfect entries in the contest is named after Marie Curie, a famous researcher who snagged not one but two Nobel prizes for her work in physics and chemistry, the release said.
Selock said the students were so excited to participate and thanked Dr. Francesca Catalano, associate dean for the KCC Division of Math, Science and Engineering, the release said.
