2005 Science Fair Winners

  • Torrin Daniels, an seventh grader at Ucross tested how discharge water from coal-bed methane development in his area affected the nutritional value of an alfalfa hay field.
  • Morgan Holz, an eighth-grader at Pinedale Middle School, won for "Keep Moving," a study of how human presence affects mule deer migrations through a narrow corridor near her home town of Pinedale.
  • Juliann Terry, a ninth-grader at Newcastle High School, entered the Science Fair with an exhibit called "The Effects of Thinning Timing in Ips Pini Infestations." Her research showed that thinning a stand of trees within the first 18 weeks of the year can greatly reduce the chances of beetle attacks on remaining trees.
