Howland High School senior Will Eisen received an Excellent Rating at The Ohio Academy of Science’s State Science Day on Saturday, May 11, 2019.
Each year, thousands of Ohio students complete independent research projects. These students go on to present their findings at local and district level events. The highest rated research projects are then entered into competition at the State Science Day.
Eisen decided to study whether plants can grow in the substrate found on Mars. Through his research, he discovered that they can grow. He also learned that by adding drinking water residuals, increased growth would occur.
Eisen plans on attending Bowling Green State University to study biology. He is currently waiting to learn if his science project earned him scholarship money for next year.
