Nearly 200 area students participated in The University of Scranton’s annual Hayes Family Science Competition for High School Physics and Engineering Students. The academic competition tested the high school students’ knowledge of physics and engineering through a series of quizzes and hands-on challenges. Students competed individually and in teams.
The competition was organized by the University’s Department of Physics and Electrical Engineering with the purpose of encouraging more students to pursue careers in physics and engineering. The Joseph Kane Estate, the University’s Financial Aid Office, the Department of Physics and Electrical Engineering and students in the University’s physics and electrical engineering program support the Hayes Family Science Competition for high school physics and engineering students.
