Pittsburgh Regional Science and Engineering Fair

Thirty one students recently represented SciTech at the Pittsburgh Regional Science and Engineering Fair.  This year, over 1,200 students from all of Western PA and Northern Maryland participated. We had two first place students, one second place student and three fourth place students.

Our students also did very well in the special awards and scholarship awards.  In fact, our students combined won over $400,000 (yes, that’s a 4 with 5 zeros) in scholarships and cash awards.  Scholarships were awarded from the following schools: Chatham University, Clarion University, Duquesne University, Gannon University, Harrisburg University, IUP, Juniata College, La Roche College, Mount Aloysius College, Penn State Greater Allegheny and Saint Francis University.

One of our SciTech seniors was awarded the Merit Award, there are only two of these given in the entire competition. Also, one SciTech sophomore will be representing the entire senior division of PRSEF at this year’s Carnegie Science Awards held at the Carnegie Music Hall in May.

Way to go SciTech!
