On March 18, eighth grade Bonlee student Sarah Jaeger won first place at the North Carolina Science Fair in the Junior Technology Division at Meredith College. Her project's title was The Effect of Different Water Temperatures on the Level of Dissolved Oxygen in Water. She researched how temperature affected the amount of dissolved oxygen in water for her project. She received a plaque, a check, and a prize from Fisher Scientific, a provider of products and services to the scientific community. Prior to the State Science Fair Competition, Sarah had won first place at Bonlee School's Science Fair and the Chatham County's Science Fair. In addition to placing first in her division at the county fair, the judges voted her project the overall winner.

“Sarah's truly a motivated individual. Along with this science honor, she is also completing pre-calculus online through Stanford University.” said Principal Ronnie Joyce, “We are proud of her representation of Bonlee School.”

Sarah's project is also nominated for the Discovery Channel Young Scientist Challenge. The Discovery Channel Young Scientist Challenge is the only science contest of its kind for students in grades 5-8, promoting the exploration, understanding and communication of science among America's youth.
