Officials at Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College (NEO) hosted the 60th annual NEO Science and Engineering Fair on Thursday, February 13. The fair hosted over 100 entries from area high school and middle schools and featured a range of disciplines, from behavioral science to zoology. This year’s top award went to Laci Goldner, a freshman from Grove High School, for her research titled “Vaping Health Crisis.” In addition, 32 high school and middle school students also qualified for the Oklahoma State Science Fair, to be held on the campus of Oklahoma State University. There, they will compete and share their ideas with young scientists from around the state.
