The Wille Hutch Jones Educational Sports Program (WHJESP) hosted their 4th annual science fair at the Birchfield Penney Art Center on Saturday, March 9th. High school, Middle  School, and local schools participated in the fair by showcasing their "hypothesis to theory" talents with the theme "Power Up". The projects were open for the public to view according to The Challenger

WBLK congratulates winners Ayana Thompson of Olmsted School, Sydney McFoy of Olmsted School, Tyleeia Lowther of school 81, Noah Baldon of City Honors, and Johannis Brown of Early Middle College.

Willie Hutch Jones welcomed the students to the science fair where they demonstrated their science projects. Claudine Ewing of WGRZ was the mistress of ceremonies. The fair was accompanied by a performance by the WHJESP Steel Drum club.

The goal of the science fair was to help kids become interested in STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) subjects in college or in a career. The Fair gives students an opportunity to showcase their talents and have hands-on experience with the scientific method.

The WHJESP After school and summer programs have been reaching the underserved population for over 34 years, and have always provided services at no cost.
