Bango honors champions of Racine Elementary School’s Fresh Air Science Fair

Recently, the fifth graders at Julian Thomas Elementary School in Racine were recognized for their outstanding participation in a Fresh Air Science Fair that lasted almost two months. The fair began on February 1st when students formed teams and submitted projects that brought concepts about clean air pollution to life. The entries were judged based on the quality of research, data analysis, and creativity of presentation.

On Wednesday, March 27th, an award assembly was held to announce the winners and award prizes. The event was attended by Milwaukee Bucks mascot Bango and trampoline dunking team, the Rim Rockers. During the assembly, first-place team members received three tickets to the April 10th Bucks game against the Orlando Magic along with transportation to and from the game and concession stand vouchers to use at Fiserv Forum during the game. Second and third-place teams received Bucks merchandise as their prizes.

The Fresh Air Science Fair was made possible through a partnership between Modine, Milwaukee Bucks, Racine Unified School District, and United Way of Racine County. This event is a great example of how science can be fun and engaging for students while also teaching them important skills like research and presentation. Congratulations to all of the winners at Julian Thomas Elementary School in Racine!
