St. Aug student excels at science fair

teenstaugbartholomew    St. Augustine High School junior David Bartholomew, won three medals in February for his project on parallel vs. series circuits at the Greater New Orleans Science & Engineering Fair held at the University of New Orleans.
    “My project really caught their attention because I built a two-story house that was 3 feet tall and 2 feet wide with built-in lights,” Bartholomew said.
    Bartholomew, a first-time fair participant, came in second place overall in the mechanical and electrical engineering category of the senior division. Thirteen schools participated in the senior division. He won $225 in cash prizes along with the three medals.
    Bartholomew was also awarded a first-place medal by M.S. Benbow and Associates for outstanding senior division investigative projects in the field of electrical engineering and another first-place medal from the New Orleans Federal Executive Board for the outstanding exhibit of energy conservation and/or energy resource development.
    He said he worked on the project during his two-week Christmas break and was inspired to do the award-winning project because he has always enjoyed building things and likes to have a challenge.
    Bartholomew, a kicker for the school’s football team, said he hopes to study aeronautical engineering at either the United States Naval Academy, United States Air Force Academy or Tuskegee University.
