PRSEF Fair Results

OC had seven students compete in the Pittsburgh Regional Science and Engineering Fair (PRSEF) held at the Carnegie Science Center on March 29th. The PRSEF fair operates differently from PJAS. Students display their research and findings on a poster board. They have a few minutes to explain their projects to the judges/scientists and answer some questions. Based on these interactions, students can earn scholarships and awards. All students put a lot of hard work into their research, poster, and fair day presentation!
