Science Research Students Stand Out at Montco Science Research Competition

On Wednesday, March 18, 2020, 17 Upper School Science Research students competed in the Montgomery County Science Research Competition (MCSRC), which was directed by Germantown Academy Phil Rittenhouse 1760. The fair occurred virtually, which entailed students making poster boards presentations of their project and sending photos to be evaluated by science fair judges. Of the 17 students who created boards over Spring Break, 11 students earned first, second or third place awards and therefore qualified for the Delaware Valley Science Fair (DVSF).
