Southeast Urban Pennsylvania Regional
|Southeast Urban Pennsylvania Regional|
|Location||St. Joseph's University|
|B Champion||Philadelphia Performing Arts Charter School|
|C Champion||Swenson Arts and Technology High School|
The Southeast Urban region of Pennsylvania is contested solely by teams participating in the Urban Schools Initiative of Pennsylvania Science Olympiad. In 2016, 8 B teams and 7 C teams competed.
The Southeast Urban region began in 2014 as a means to get urban schools within the city of Philadelphia more involved with Science Olympiad. The first ever regional was held on April 5th, 2014, at the String Theory Charter School of Philadelphia Performing Arts, between five high schools and three middle schools. Since then, the program has steadily grown in size and scope. The 2016 regional was held on March 5th at St. Joseph's University.
Teams from this region also regularly participate in Build It/Study It/Learn It Days, in which participants are assisted in the events by nearby teams Bala Cynwyd Middle School and Harriton High School.
