A South River High School sophomore was recently honored for her work in the Anne Arundel County Regional Science and Engineering Fair.
According to the Anne Arundel County Schools website, Anna Sappington received the second-place grand award for her project, which investigated Triclosan and its potential toxicity to aquatic invertebrate organisms. Triclosan is a widely used chemical found in toothpaste, soaps and disinfecting products, according to AACPS.
Sappington will join North County sophomore Jack Andraka at Intel ISEF in Phoenix, AZ, in May. Andraka won the county fair for the second year in a row.
