2022 PJAS Winners
By: Kimura Dixon
PJAS is an organization called Pennsylvania Junior Academy of Science that is meant to boost junior and senior high school students' interest in science. In order to compete, students had to complete a scientific experiment and make slides to go along with it. Students got to present their projects in front of judges at Northampton Community College. Ryan F. and Mary R. earned perfect scores! Out of the 7th and 8th graders, 44 first placed first and 41 placed second. Our first place finishers are looking forward to competing at Penn State in May!
