CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. — Nine Wilson College seniors presented the results of their research at the 89th Annual Meeting of the Pennsylvania Academy of Science (PAS), held April 5 to7 at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford.

The following Wilson students presented research: Kelly Antonucci, Kayla Croft, Connie Goodwin, Rachael Kinley, Aneshia Knepper, Chelsea Krebs, Monica Lyons, Ovsanna Movsesyan and Chelsey Smentkowski.

Chelsea Krebs placed third in the oral presentation category for her research project, “Comparative Analysis of Viability Assays for Evaluation of Post-Thaw Equine Spermatozoa,” which she completed in collaboration with Selective Breeders Services of Chesapeake City, Md.

Photos of the students and abstracts of their presentations can be viewed here.

PAS judged oral presentations and posters, and provided monetary awards for the top three places in each category. Oral presentations were assessed in categories for scientific merit ­- ranging from experimental methodologies to analysis of results - and presentation qualities, including visual impact and fielding of questions. The overall score was reflective of all subcategories.
