By March 19, 2020 PCA News Stories

Each year, the Upper School students work in small groups to select a science-related question, provide a research proposal, research the topic using the scientific method, and then present their conclusion to a panel of judges. The projects are divided into three sections based on grade-level: freshman, sophomore, and junior/senior.  Congratulations to all of the grade-level winners! A special congratulations to seniors Erik Diehl, Mason Bois, and Noah Markert for being named Grand Prize Winners for their project entitled “Myoelectric Feedback and R & D in Prosthetics.” Great job, Eagles!
