Inspired by personal struggles, EES student raises awareness of bone disorder

East Elementary School fifth-grader Kayte Hoppes didn’t have to look very far to come up with an idea for her science fair project. But now that project — which earned a top 10 points total at regionals — is taking her places and opening up a whole new world to her curious eyes. Kayte, who has a degenerative bone disorder, decided she wanted to take a look at chicken bones and how they could be manipulated. Kayte will get the chance to compete with her project at a state level science fair competition March 31 at IUPUI in Indianapolis. “I am very excited and I can’t believe I get to go,” Kayte said. “I can’t wait.”
