Students from Weatherly Area High School have been named "Best in State" Division One winners in the 2011 JETS (Junior Engineering Technical Society) teams competition which was held at Bucknell University.

The award winning 11th and 12th graders work to solve the global energy supply and demand problems highlighted by the recent Gulf of Mexico oil spill and current events in the Middle East.

Their ultimate goal is to offer solutions for diversifying the U.S. energy supply defending our energy infrastructure and identifying existing and new technologies to make our homes, vehicles, buildings, and industries more energy efficient and our environment cleaner.

The students were among more than 10,000 teams participating from communities around the country who experienced firsthand how engineers are involved in addressing the global energy issue.

The JETS program touches more than 40,000 students and 10,000 educators from 6,000 high schools across the country.

Bucknell University provided lunch for the students and they also received Bucknell backpacks.
