On Saturday, February 5th, 14 Riverview students participated virtually in the regional Pennsylvania Junior Academy of Science (PJAS) competition. PJAS allows students to complete scientific laboratory experiments and STEM related investigations under the guidance of a teacher mentor. Students then present their results to a panel of scientists, engineers, and teacher who evaluate the quality of the student's work.
The following students presented projects at the competition:
Investigating the Production of a Precipitate
Investigating the Production of a Gas
The Effect of Snow on Solar Panels
Experimenting with Hydroponics and Nutrients
Granular Versus Liquid Fertilizer
Investigating Cellular Respiration
How do Different Sugar Substitutes affect Yeast?
The Decomposition of Hydrogen Peroxide
Effect of Acid on a Metal
The Effect of Salt Water on Plant Growth
The Effect of Fluoride on Tooth Enamel
Investigating Waves on a String
Investigating Electromagnetic Induction
We are pleased to announce that Rocco, Isabel, Sienna, Murphy, Bella, Finn, and Olivia earned First Awards for their projects! Congratulations to all of the Riverview participants for their hard work and dedication to their research over the past few months! We are so proud of their accomplishments and their dedication to STEM related fields of study.
Well done! You all make Riverview incredibly proud!
