Students of Alpha Christian Academy in Providenciales presented an impressive array of artful science projects at their Science Fair on May 25-26 at the School Auditorium.
Ranging from topics on bugs to the solar system, the exhibit proved a success as parents, teachers and school administrators gazed in awe.
“This is unlocking the curiosity in children”, said Nicola Hanna, principal of the school. She added that the Fair became an avenue where students translated their questions and answers to certain phenomena into colorful art projects.
“It is very beneficial,” Hanna said, pointing out that the projects were a family affair. “It was a family project. Parents were just as involved as their child.”
The projects were the result of a month-long hard work.

Hanna thanked parents for their support and the panel of judges, teachers and non-governmental organizations for their assistance.
A special judging was done for each of the displays and winners for each level received special prizes from Digicel, the Turks and Caicos National Trust and Beaches Turks and Caicos.
The winners were:
