Nearly 250 area students participated in The University of Scranton’s annual Hayes Family Science Competition for high school physics and engineering students. The academic competition tested the high school students’ knowledge of physics and engineering through a series of quizzes and hands-on challenges. Students competed individually and in teams.
In the team competition, Berwick High School Team One placed first.
The competition was organized by the University’s Department of Physics and Electrical Engineering with the purpose of encouraging more students to pursue careers in physics and engineering.
