Since Cadence took first place at her school science fair & did so well at the County Fair, she got accepted to the Regional Science Fair at Old Dominion University. She was SO excited to get some feedback from some great college professors.
She was excited that some of her friends made it as well. Their projects were right next to each other during the fair too so the girls could talk to each other in between defending/presenting their projects to the judges.
I was really proud of Cadence. She held her own during the defending part of the process very well. She was very poised & very confident in her project & she did really really well.
Cadence wound up placing 4th in the Chemistry Division of the fair. We were SO proud of her & all she did to get this far.
Cadence's good friend JT took 2nd place in his division. The two of them were the only kids from Isle of Wight County to place at Regionals.
It's been a crazy, hard, wild, but fun ride for the last 4 months for Cadence. I'm very happy that all of her extremely hard work, late nights, & several experimentations were well worth it & recognized. She did an amazing job.
