The 2023 Lowcountry Science Fair will be held in-person on March 30th at the College Center, Trident Tech. Judges are required to complete judging with the help of a grading rubric (to be provided by LHSM). The time to be present at the venue depends on the type of judging you choose. Category and Special Awards judging will take place from 9am to 11:30am. The final judging is scheduled from 1:30 pm to 4 pm. Light refreshments will be served at the Judges’ Suite. Please complete the online registration at your earliest convenience. You will be notified of your category and division a week before the competition.
Save the date! The 2023 Lowcountry Regional Science and Engineering Fair (LRSEF) will be held on March 30th in the College Center at Trident Technical College. The registration is open until March 05, 2023.
Dear STEM360 Participants!
Hope you had an exciting week with amazing STEM activities. Please share your reflection on this summer program by responding to another survey. Thank you very much.
Here is link for the survey….
This quick pre-survey is for our enthusiastic STEM 360 participants. Please respond to all survey questions prior to attend the event next Monday. We are excited to meet with you in person next week. Go STEM 360!!!

Attention STEM Teachers in the Lowcountry!
We are excited to invite all STEM teachers to attend a Teacher Workshop (with a stipend of $100) on teaching Weather and Atmospheric Sciences at the Elementary and Middle School Levels.
The goal of this workshop is to demonstrate how weather and environmental science can be integrated within the science curriculum that is suitable for elementary and middle school students. The topics that will be discussed are: (1) instruments used to measure common meteorological variables such as temperature; pressure; wind speed and wind direction; humidity; and water quality; (2) the science of cloud formation and the water cycle; (3) the science behind ocean currents; and (4) the science behind heat transfer by convection. An emphasis will be given on how the scientific method can be applied to understand the science behind each phenomenon.
We plan to admit a maximum of 25 teachers for the workshop based on their teaching/learning needs. Teachers will be provided with video lessons in various exciting topics prepared by experts at the College of Charleston in the corresponding fields. We expect teachers implement one or more topics in their classrooms in Fall 2022.
Please complete the survey for us to have your feedback/input/comments/suggestions about this venture.

The 2022 Lowcountry Regional Science and Engineering Fair was held Friday (March 25) at the College Center in the Trident Tech campus. Despite the Covid-related concerns, there was a total of 37 students participated to exhibit and present their magnificent projects in science, engineering and math. Congratulations to all our winners, this list of which can be accessed at https://lhsm.cofc.edu/lowcountry-science-fair/2022lrsef-awards/2022_lrsef_awards.pdf
The top winners this year included:
Audrey Brown from Lowcountry Leadership Charter School won the award for Junior 1 Division (5th and 6th grades) for her project titled “Relationship between Hand, Foot, & Eye Dominance”. She seeks to determine what type of correlation exists between a person’s dominant hand, eye, and foot under the supervision of Ms, June Lowry.
Iris Coles under the supervision of Dr. Michelle Neubauer at the Georgetown School of Arts & Sciences won the award for Junior 2 Division (7th and 8th grades). Her project titled ” Do Cheap Tennis Rackets Work As Well As Expensive Tennis Rackets” was to test the bounce height on a cheap tennis racket and on an expensive racket.
In Senior 1 Division (9th and 10th grades). Michael Rosol at the Academy for the Arts, Science & Technology presented his study titled as “The Use of Electrospun Piezoelectric Nanofibers to Harvest Acoustic Energy into Electrical Energy” under the supervision of Dr. Christopher Uhrain. His project aims on converting acoustic energy into everyday electrical power. This can be done through electrospun materials such as PVDF and Nylon-11 which have the ability to produce electrical current due to their piezoelectric properties.
The winner for Senior 2 Division (11th and 12th grades) was Angela Mei at the Academic Magnet High school, who has done her research under the MUSC Professor Hai Yao, and supervised by her teacher Katy Metzner-Roop. She won the award for her spectacular study on the “MoJoint: A Motion Visualization and Kinematic Analysis Software for the Musculoskeletal System”. She developed a software (MoJoint) that reads the geometry files generated from medical imaging and the motion data from a marker-based motion tracking system and integrates them to calculate the joint motion.
Among the prestigious Special Awards, Angela Mei won the REGENERON Biomedical Science Award, Nolan Cheek secured the RICOH and CSWCD Awards, and Michael Rosol was selected for the Yale Award for an outstanding Science/Engineering Project. While Annika Villafranca won the APS Award, Samantha Freeman was chosen for the Women Geoscientists Award, Jeremiah Benton for the US Air Force Award, and Samuel Hall for the USMA Award.
The overall winner at the Senior Divisions, Angela Mei, will travel to Atlanta, GA to present their projects at the Regeneron International Science and Engineering Fair in May 2022.
Thank you to all students, teachers, parents and judges for being a part of this exciting event, to encourage STEM minds!
