Shreveport Aquarium’s Sustainability Award winners and their chaperones embarked on an incredible journey to the Pacific Northwest that turned these students into true Oregon Coast explorers!
Shreveport Aquarium was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to judge and provide some really cool prizes at the Louisiana Region Science and Engineering Fair at the Bossier Civic Center and the ArtBreak, sponsored by the Shreveport Regional Arts Council (SRAC).
There was an incredible amount of talent on display and it was great to see the results of a tremendous amount of hard work and dedication.
Taking top prize at ArtBreak was Lindsey Sullivan with her piece titled "Tied by the Tide." Participating students from grades 6-12 are challenged to create an artwork representation of water, whether inspired by a water-based tale, aquatic creatures, waves, or a single droplet, using only recycled materials.
Our grand prize Golden Sea Star winner of the Science and Engineering Fair was Nola G. Nola’s project examined how fish diets can have a positive and negative effect on the health of the fish, the health of the people eating the fish and also how these diets can impact the environment.
The group enjoyed a scenic trip into Newport Oregon, OCCC Aquarium Science Center tours, whale watching, tide pooling and more.
