15th annual CAAHP Symposium

Our students and teachers continue to make us proud with their academic achievements.The 15th annual CAAHP Symposium was attended by Mrs. Mattern's Advanced Biology class on May 14th at the University of Montana. Over 200 students completed projects centering on carbon monoxide, radon, and particulate matter in various settings that may affect respiratory health. Our students swept the competition off their feet! Students could do either an oral presentation or present a scientific poster, each having 1st-3rd places recognized.

The following are our results:

1st place oral presentations: Seamus Hoolahan and Kaitlyn Frank ($150) for their project on comparing the PM 2.5 concentrations of e-cigarettes, cigarettes and incense.

3rd place oral presentations: Jaycee Jette ($100) for her project on how to reduce carbon monoxide emissions in our fire department.

2nd place scientific posters: Spencer Heffernan, Taylor Hintz, Trenton Wolfe and Peyton Klanecky ($75) for their project on the PM 2.5 emissions of dryer vents.

3rd place scientific posters: Jessica LaTray, Audrey Forsberg, and Johanna Siefert ($50) for their project on the effect of the orchestras tempo and rosin dust on PM 2.5 concentrations.
