Veritas Students Compete in AZ Science & Engineering Fair
 
From 6th-Grade Science Teacher Mrs. Andaloro:

The AZSEF awards ceremony was an exciting event. It was an honor to be in a room full of students with an obvious curiosity, wonder, and passion for science and engineering.

I am so proud of the twelve students we sent to the AZSEF. Of these students we sent, four placed in the top three for their category:
 
Beau Kinerk placed 3rd in Cellular and Molecular Biology
Nicolai Valenta placed 3rd in Physics
Kishan Bhatnagar placed 2nd in Mathematical Sciences
Elvie Eaton placed 2nd in Plant Sciences

Pictured above are all Veritas finalists who entered the AZ Science and Engineering Fair: Nadine Ali, Kishan Bhatnagar, Elvie Eaton, Erika Ghassemi, Beau Kinerk, Calyn Kinerk, Adam Langlois, Shea Lyon, Allison Mathis, Thomas McAndrew, Evan Reina, and Nicolai Valenta.
