Twenty-six students from Springside Chestnut Hill Academy received honors at Philadelphia’s George Washington Carver Science Fair, with junior Gwyneth Bjordammen winning an award for ‘Best of Fair.’
The students competed against 11th and 12th graders from high schools across the city, including Central, Masterman, Science Leadership Academy, Girls’ High School, Science and Engineering, Philadelphia Academy Charter School, and more.
The students displayed their research and presented their work to a panel of judges/scientists. Twelve students won first place medals in five of the 12 categories, and other students were awarded a variety of speciality medals.
Students who earned a first-, second- or third-place medal became eligible for the regional Delaware Valley Science Fair.
