Students from Brocton, Frewsburg, Jamestown, Pine Valley, Sherman, and Warren County Christian School participated in the Amazing Science Challenge at JCC’s Jamestown Campus recently.

The program, held on two different days to incorporate special events at JCC, was open to students in grades 9-12. Students competed in team-based activities involving biotechnology, forensic biology, and environmental science.

Three of the schools had the opportunity to interact with exhibitors at JCC’s annual Earthfest event. The others helped plant trees to commemorate Arbor Day at JCC. All of the students competed in a scavenger hunt to find information on a variety of topics, including animal species, alternative energy sources, and environmental conservation.

The winning teams were comprised of Katelyn Miller, 9th grade and Samantha Rettig, 11th grade, Pine Valley, Dylan Wagner, 10th grade and Cory Abata, 11th grade, Sherman, and Victoria Wells, 12th grade, Brocton; and Tyler Hultberg and Nick Mole, 11th grade, Frewsburg, Liz Hallberg, 12th grade, Jamestown, and Desirae Kerr, 11th grade, Warren County Christian.
