Racine Students Tackle Air Pollution in Epic Science Fair

Bango honors victors of Racine elementary school’s Fresh Air Science Fair

A recent Fresh Air Science Fair held at Julian Thomas Elementary School in Racine recognized the participation of fifth-grade students. The fair, which lasted nearly two months, began on February 1st with teams forming and projects being submitted that brought clean air pollution concepts to life. Each entry was judged based on the quality of research, data analysis, and the creativity of their presentation.

The award assembly on Wednesday, March 27th saw attendance from Milwaukee Bucks mascot Bango and the trampoline dunking team, the Rim Rockers. During the assembly, winners were announced and prizes were awarded. The first-place team members received three tickets to the April 10 Bucks game against the Orlando Magic, transportation to and from the game, and concession stand vouchers to use at Fiserv Forum during the game. Second and third-place winning teams received Bucks merchandise.

The Fresh Air Science Fair is a collaborative effort between Modine, Milwaukee Bucks, Racine Unified School District, and United Way of Racine County. This partnership allows students to explore important scientific concepts in a fun and engaging way. Congratulations to all the winners of this year’s Science Fair!
