High school students from Pine Valley and Sherman participated in the Amazing Science Challenge at Jamestown Community College’s Jamestown Campus recently.
The event, open to students in grades 9-12, involved team-based activities. Students competed in challenges involving chemistry, epidemiology, and environmental science.
Students had the opportunity to interact with vendors at JCC’s annual Earthfest event, which was held on the same day of the challenge, competing in a scavenger hunt to find information on a variety of topics, including animal species, upcycling, and wetland conservation.
The winning team was comprised of Claudia Gratto, 9th grade and Samantha Keith, 10th grade, Sherman Central School, and Jasmine Bremiller, 11th grade, and Alex Kelly, 12th grade, Pine Valley Central School.
