Chester High Students Competition at the Regional Science Fair

Chester High School students recently competed at the Delaware Valley Science Fair at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks, Pennsylvania.  Students competed at the regional (inter-state) level with the hopes of making it to the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair in May. 1,000 of the region’s top student-scientists competed for major scholarship money and prizes in the “Olympics of Science Fairs.”  
Here are the Science Projects which made it to the regional level after winning at the district and county levels:
Eggs-citing 2 by 11th grade students Anthony Reed and Tyler Ballard
Supervising Biology Teacher Mrs. Mary Tucker
Water Quality: A Comparative of water quality monitoring tests at Chester Creek and Ridley Creek by 12th grade students Shalenee Nunez, Katya Richie, and Havana Dixon
Supervising Chemistry Teacher: Dr. Delores Wright

From Mary Tucker, Science Teacher at Chester High School

Across the board these entries were groundbreaking and as elaborate as any college or professional scientific research, feeding a student’s natural curiosity and paving the way for great scientific careers and future innovations. Chester High School’s Principal, Dr. Darla Hammond, was extremely proud of the fact that Chester High School had five student entries. Tyler Ballard, and Anthony Reed, Project “Egg- Citing 2”, Mrs. Mary Tucker Instructor, and  Havana Dixon, Shalenee Nunez, and Katya Richie,   “Water Quality”, Instructor, Dr. Delores Wright were selected to compete at the DVSF after placing at the Delaware County Science Fair. Prior to this competition, Chester High School is continuing to demonstrate progress with regard to providing opportunities for students to excel when given the chance. C-Pride remains ALIVE.
