Tuscola High School sophomores Emma Dorgan and Addison Wyatt received awards for their science projects at the Region 8 Western Regional Science and Engineering Fair on Feb. 14 at Western Carolina University.

The science competition is the largest Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) event held in Western North Carolina. More than 250 student projects from 25 schools across 16 counties were on display.

Dorgan received first place in the senior chemistry category for her project “How to Prevent Enzymatic Browning in Apples,” which examined the value of using fruit juices to limit the browning of apple slices.

Wyatt’s project, “Multitasking: Helpful or Hurtful,” won third place in the senior biology B category and received a special biology judges merit award. Her project tested the effects of listening to music while completing cognitive tasks.

Both Dorgan and Wyatt are members of the honors chemistry I classes at Tuscola taught by Jim Davis and Matt Bracewell.

Dorgan’s project is now eligible for competition at the North Carolina Science & Engineering Fair in Raleigh, N.C. in March.
