Congratulations to the 10 New Castle Junior High students who competed in the Pennsylvania Junior Academy of Science on Saturday, February 22, 2020 at Slippery Rock University.  Each student researched and designed their own experiment, collected and analyzed their data and prepared a 10 minute presentation to a panel of adult scientist judges.
The 6 first place winners are: Alexandra Browne, Ashley Hawkins, Kamryn Klik, Joseph Mazzocco, Alexa Perrotta and Peyton Rodgers.  The 4 second place winners are: Stacey Bailey, Olivia Caminiti, Stephan Gibson and Nathaniel Pitzer.  First place winners will compete in the State competition held in May at Penn State University.
