Huffman Middle School's Benjamin Barnett and Amro Nasser secured noteworthy wins after competing in the Regional Science & Engineering Fair at UAB on March 4.
Benjamin received Honorable Mention in Biology and an Outstanding Achievement Award from the American Physiology Society.
Amro won second place in Chemistry. That win has qualified him to compete at the Alabama Science & Engineering Fair at UAH on April 6-7. 
" I am extremely proud of Benjamin and Amro,'' said Huffman Middle School Principal Washunda Gill. "Their outstanding achievements resulted from  diligence and commitment.  The more we expose our students to STEM, (the more that) will increase their interest and intent to choose an educational pathway in STEM fields.''
