Last Saturday, Lower Moreland students from grades 6-12 took part in the regional level of the Pennsylvania Junior Academy of Science’s research competition. The regional competition, held at Souderton Area High School, allowed students from Montgomery County schools to present research findings in over ten branches of science. Topics of interest ranged from computer simulations of species population growth to employing mathematical formulas for more efficient agriculture.

Three students — sisters Gopiga and Brinda Dass, and Anya Yang — earned perfect scores on their experiments. 17 other students from Lower Moreland High School earned top scores in their respective categories as well. These students will be moving on to participate in the state competition, held at Penn State University on May 17.
