Impressive results for International at SFBASF Science Fair
Posted 04/02/2015 03:05PM

International High School's Science Club may only be in its second year, but the members of this extracurricular activity are elevating its status with some well-deserved awards.

Last year, Amely Joly was the first International High School student to participate in the San Francisco Bay Area Science Fair (SFBASF). She received an award for second place and was qualified to the California State Science Fair competition in Los Angeles.

This year, along with some of the best schools in the Bay Area, International sent eight students to participate in this challenging science competition. Their science teacher, Julien Astruc, describes the group as talented and dedicated.
