Young Scientists Showcase Research at Ursinus College

Montgomery County’s budding scientists will show off their research during the 60th Montgomery County Science Research Competition on Wednesday, March 8 on the Ursinus College campus. 

The event offers 460 high school students representing 34 Montgomery County schools the unique opportunity to pursue a sophisticated scientific research project and receive feedback from professional scientists.

The middle school students will share their work from 8 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and the high school students will present from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. in the Floy Lewis Bakes Field House.

The students are required to present a tri-fold display board, log book and research report, give a brief explanation of their projects, and answer questions from judges. Up to 100 judges representing various scientific professions across the region will be on hand to judge the projects.

Two middle school winners and three high school winners will be selected to compete in April at the Delaware Valley Science Fair, where they will vie for $3 million in scholarships and awards and compete against students from schools in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware.

Award ceremonies will take place on Friday, March 10 at 5:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. in the Bomberger Auditorium.
