Pittsburgh Regional Science & Engineering Fair

Five Seneca Valley students showcased their innovative research projects at the 85th annual Pittsburgh Regional Science & Engineering Fair (PRSEF), held at the Carnegie Science Center, April 2-3.

They joined nearly 500 students from across the region to participate in this esteemed fair which serves as the qualifying event for the International Science and Engineering Fair, taking place in Los Angeles, California this May.

The PRSEF invites middle and high school students to take on the challenge of designing, implementing and communicating an original experiment while competing for cash prizes and scholarships. On average, students spend about one year leading up to the Science Fair developing and executing their project by utilizing the scientific method.

Junior Isabella Muthler received a Sponsor award from Air & Waste Management Association for her project Dyeing Microplastics.

Seneca Valley participants included juniors Eric Chen and Isabella Muthler, sophomores Autumn Zacherl and Roshini Umesh, and freshman Albert Pimenov.
