9th Annual Science and Career Expo

On March 21, 2020
On March 21, 2020, YMWIC hosted its 9th Annual Science Expo. The event, sponsored by CHOP, was not our typical YMWIC Scholar Showcase.
The program began in September 2019 where the Scholars selected a project, used the scientific method to execute and present their projects in March 2020. Scholars were required to meet specific deadlines for their Research Plan, Lab Report, Project Board and PowerPoint Presentation. About 60 volunteers from many partner corporations dialed in to judge the Scholar’s oral presentations and boards via WebEx.
Congratulations to the following winners: The Future Stars group winner was Delight Adeyemi, Neptune Scholar winner was Janis A. Bady, High School winning team was Cecilia Castaneda-Jimenez and Natalia Jimenez and the senior group winner was Matthew Wilford.
