Green Dreams: Racine’s Fifth Graders Recognized for Scientific Ingenuity in Fight Against Air Pollution

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

At Julian Thomas Elementary School in Racine, fifth graders were recently recognized for their hard work and dedication in the nearly two-month long Fresh Air Science Fair. The fair began on February 1st when students formed teams and submitted projects 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 winning teams were announced at an award assembly held on Wednesday, March 27th, with special guests Milwaukee Bucks mascot Bango and the trampoline dunking team, the Rim Rockers. Prizes were awarded to the first-place team members who 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!
