Science Fair

    It’s science fair season. More than 500 Philadelphia students presented their science and math projects at the George Washington Carver science fair yesterday. And last night the national Intel science talent search announced the top ten winners in its annual competition. This was serious business – the grand prize is 100,000 dollars in scholarship money. Pennsylvania sent four students to Washington DC for the competition this year – that’s the most that have made it to the finals in more than 20 years. From the health and science desk at WHYY, Kerry Grens has more on what it takes to get there.
