Students in seventh, eighth and ninth grade compete in many TSA competitions throughout the year. These competitions test students from many schools across Pennsylvania and the United States on their accomplishments in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The teams at the junior high and high school go to different competitions around Pennsylvania. After each competition, the students who get the highest place in the competitions move up to the next stage. These students work even harder to make their ideas or projects even better than they were before, but some students create a brand new project for the next competition they go to. All of the students that moved on are Casey Rispoli, Malia Schimminger, Tyler Rispoli, Jen Worley, Vanessa Gil, Coby Bornhart-Horton and Hannah Brown. These students advanced on to the next level.
