Nearly 20 high school students from Frewsburg Central School and the Jamestown Loving Education At Home homeschool group participated in the Amazing Science Challenge at Jamestown Community College recently.
The event, open to students in ninth through 12th grades, involved team-based activities.
Each team explored dissecting a sheep's brain, animal identification, engineering a structure, and sources of energy.

The students also participated in Earthfest, JCC's annual Earth Day celebration, which was held on the same day of the challenge, by interacting with various exhibitors and vendors during a scavenger hunt.
The winning team was "Homeostasis," comprised of Joey Gerace (ninth grade, homeschooled), Megan Davis (10th grade, Frewsburg), Elijah Loomis (10th grade, homeschooled), and Christian Sardi (12th grade), Frewsburg).
