On Saturday, February 3rd, 9 Riverview students participated in the regional Pennsylvania Junior Academy of Science (PJAS) competition held at Baldwin High School. 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 and engineers who evaluate the quality of the student's work. The following students presented projects at the competition.
Fuel Combustion Investigation
The Endothermic Cold Pack
Investigating Antacid Effectiveness
The Effect of Sugar on SCOBY Size
Investigating Sand Batteries
How Seed Age Affects Germination by Oxygen Consumed
Calculating Light Speed in Different Salt Concentrations
The Effects of Temperature on Dissolved Oxygen in Water
We are pleased to announce that Elise, Bianca, Natalie, Ruby, Grace, Nick, and Rocco earned First Awards for their projects, making them eligible to compete at the state PJAS competition in May. In addition, Grace Landis received a special award from the Society of Women Engineer’s, while Rocco Brown earned a Perfect Score for his project and presentation as well as a Director’s Award in Physics.
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.
