Ethan Kozden, a fourth-grade student from Wyoming Area Catholic School, Exeter, attended the National Young Scholars Program held in July at Villanova University. The program inspires outstanding third-, fourth- and fifth-grade students to explore, invent, learn and think creatively. Students choose a specific area of study and engage in hands-on, interactive learning. The program culminates with student-created projects tying leadership skills to the discoveries made in their specific area of study. Kozden’s chosen area of study was forensic science.
