April 9, 2024-- The annual trilogy of science fair success goes school > Stockton > DVSF. After district students competed in the first and second legs, the standouts advanced to the Delaware Valley Science Fair (DVSF) held April 2 at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center.

Intermediate North's Rishil Patel, who earned second place for his probability project at the JSSF, participated at DVSF to the delight of science teachers and advisors Kathleen Keller and Kristin Renkin.

Intermediate East science teacher Gina Phillips, meanwhile, accompanied a cohort of her students to Philly, and it proved well worth the trip.

Isabella Cutillo and Chiaki Lux competed in the Group Project category. Alex Kanterezhi-Gatto won second place in Botany, and is now eligible to participate in the Thermo Fischer Scientific Junior Innovators Challenge. Michael Kuhlsen won first place from the Chromatography Forum of Delaware Valley, and Owen Soheily won the Merck Achievement Award for Excellence in Drug Discovery and Human Health.
