Ashland University hosted the 54th annual Mohican District Science Fair over the weekend. Students from eight counties around Ohio participated in the fair to get superior ratings and move up in the state rankings. 

Dr. Michael Hudson, director of the Mohican District Science Fair, said "Our students appear to be interested in all areas of science, from behavior, to zoology." 

Many projects this year fell under the categories of physics or engineering, but there's still great interest in the chemistry, biochemistry, biology, earth and space sciences, and behavioral sciences.

125 judges examined presentations at this year's science fair, some judges returning yet again after several times.

"We have judges that have judged here for over 40 years," Hudson noted, "And they keep coming back to give themselves voluntarily because they believe in STEM Education. I can't say enough about these volunteers and judges, and what they do for these students."

Hudson believes one of the most important things the annual fair has to offer is the interaction students have with judges, whether it be engaging their thoughts and ideas with questions, or offering constructive criticisms and praise. Each student receives a comment sheet from their judge, usually with a fairly lengthy review of their presentation and understanding of their topic.

"That feedback is invaluable to students," Hudson said.
