Dr. Steve Murphree, biology professor, again served as a judge for the 2nd Annual Rutherford County Schools (RCS) STEM Expo Night held at Stewarts Creek High School in Smyrna. The countywide event included nearly 100 student projects representing grades 6-12. Students presented original research developed from a complex question, problem or challenge.
In addition to judging three projects, Murphree also chose the recipient of the “Belmont University Award of Excellence,” a special award. This year’s recipient was “No Oil in the Ocean” by McKenna Smith and Andrew Johnson of Stewarts Creek Middle School.
