Welcome to DVSC


The Delaware Valley Science Council encourages students in our region to study and pursue careers in science and math.

The DVSC partners with schools, businesses, professional societies, and community volunteers to identify, encourage, and recognize talented youth in the Delaware Valley with outstanding capabilities in science and math.  Our primary program is a competition targeting high school juniors with an interest in science.  Nominated students from area schools sit for two examinations from among biology, chemistry, mathematics and physics.  Finalists are selected based on the exam results, and are invited to participate in interviews in September of their senior year, with combined scores leading to cash awards announced in October.

The science council works towards ensuring a scientifically literate and talented workforce for tomorrow’s needs in Delaware Valley business, education and government.
