Two CSD Students Advance to International Science and Engineering Fair

Canyons District students captured 42 awards at the Salt Lake Valley Science and Engineering Fair.  The winners include Hillcrest High seniors Alex Cheng and Alex Sun, who now advance to the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair in Los Angeles, Calif., where they’ll compete for thousands of dollars in college scholarships.

Cheng’s award-winning project, “Analysis of Retinal Fundus Images to Detect Macular Degeneration Using Machine Learning Methods,” combines medical diagnostics with computer science, whereas Sun focused on behavioral science with a project titled, “Understanding ‘Compassion Fade.'”

Other award-winners of note include six middle school and elementary-age students who were named Broadcom Masters finalists.  This means they’re invited to apply to compete at the National Broadcom Science Fair in Washington, D.C. “Not all Broadcom winners will be accepted, but it’s an honor just to be allowed to apply,” says CSD Science Specialist Leslie Allen. The Broadcom winners are Drew Stevens and Fatima Zaidi, students at Albion Middle; Ruby Gardner, a student at Altara Elementary; Marianne Liu, Abigail Slama-Catron and Eric Snauffer, students at Midvale Middle; and Gabriel Williams, a student Peruvian Park.

At the regional science fair, Canyons District students competed against hundreds of their elementary, middle and high school peers from surrounding districts and private schools.

Lucie Chamberlain

Alta View Elementary

If a movie about super teachers were ever made, Lucie Chamberlain would be a prime candidate for a leading role. Fortunately for her kindergarten students at Alta View Elementary, she already thrives in a supporting role for them. Parents thank her for being a “super teacher.” She is also described as an “amazing colleague.” Whether students need help in the classroom or from home while sick, Lucie goes above and beyond to help them learn, overcome fears, and feel important and cared for. Lucie is the reason a number of kids went from hating school to loving it, according to parents. The way she exudes patience, sweetness, positive energy, and love for her students with special needs melts is appreciated and admired. One parent noted: “Both my kids wish she could be their teacher forever.” Another added:  “She treats every student like their learning and their feelings are her priority.” Super teacher, indeed!
