Young scientists showcase skills at Northwood


The Northwood High School gym was packed Wednesday evening with some pretty impressive science experiments – and hundreds of very smart students – during the 29th annual Irvine Unified School District Science Fair, sponsored by the Broadcom Foundation in partnership with the Irvine Public Schools Foundation.

Project titles included “The Effects of Sleep Deprivation on Reaction Time and Memory Retention,” “An Analysis of Clock Rate and Thermal Scaling in Modern Multi-Core Microprocessors” and, of course, “The Diffusion of Gummy Bears.”

The Orange County Register posted a few photos from the event that can be accessed here.
