Of the nine students that participated, seven students earned first, second, third place, or "special" awards sponsored by a variety of science and engineering companies and professional organizations.
Science Research Program
The Upper School Science Research Program provides plenty of supporting evidence for the hypothesis that GA is a leader in science education. Each year, about two dozen motivated students undertake year-long independent research projects and represent GA in regional and state science competitions.
Under the direction of Upper School Science teacher Sarah Kesten, GA students have accrued numerous first-place finishes and hundreds of thousands of dollars in scholarship money. The program concludes in the spring as students share their work with the GA community at the Science Fair Open House.
Eleven students earned first, second, or third place awards at the Montgomery County Science Research Competition.
Nine students earned first place awards and qualified for the 84th annual PJAS State Competition.
