Heritage students competed in the State Science and Engineering Fair (SEEF) April 4-7. Following both the school and county science fairs, 30 top students were chosen to compete in the state fair, held in Lakeland, Fla, 13 of which were from Heritage.
Following two rounds of competition held April 4, attendees attended a student mixer at the baseball field at Joker Marchant Stadium. The next day, they visited Florida Aquarium, where students were able to see wetland animals, penguins and marine life. Following their visit to the aquarium, the students enjoyed lunch in Channelside Mall.
