SCHers Shine at Carver Science Fair

SCHers triumphed at this year's George Washington Carver Science Fair. Facing fierce competition from the top science programs at Central High School, Masterman, Science and Engineering Magnet, Philadelphia Academy Charter School, and others, 12 out of 15 of our students received honors and medals at the Temple University awards ceremony.

Students showcased their innovative research and impressed judges, a panel of seasoned scientists.  Those who secured 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place medals will now have the chance to compete against the best from Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware at the prestigious Delaware Valley Science Fair.  

The George Washington Carver Science Fair is an annual fair that provides opportunities for Philadelphia school students to gain enriched learning experiences through scientific inquiry and discovery. The fair is held every spring and is open to all students in grades four through 12 who attend Philadelphia County public, charter, parochial, and private schools and home-schooled students residing in the county.
The fair is sponsored jointly by Temple University's College of Science & Technology and the Office of Community Affairs & Engagement.

Congratulations to our rising scientific stars, and best of luck at the next level!
