The Science Department wants to share the GREAT news of the academic successes of our AWESOME students this past Saturday at the PJAS Competition at Slippery Rock University.  PJAS is the state-sponsored science fair where students design and perform their own science research project and present their findings to a panel of adult scientist judges.  There were 525 students from 54 schools in the 9 surrounding counties. 

Seventy-one New Castle students received 1st place awards!  This is the largest group of 1st place winners of ANY school (private, public, parochial, cyber, charter or homeschool) in the entire state of PA!  Twenty-five of our students received 2nd place awards, and none had a third or fourth award!  Please congratulate them when you see them!

The competition involves students preparing a three to five minute spoken essay.  The question students had to answer this year was, “Why Are Veterans Important to our Nation’s History and Future?”
