KUTZTOWN, Pa. - Kutztown University will play host to more than 500 middle and high school students competing in the Central Eastern Pennsylvania Regional Science Olympiad on March 20.  The region covers Berks, Bucks, Lehigh and Northampton Counties.  Twenty-eight high schools (Division C) and ten middle schools (Division B) have entered teams to compete in 23 different events.
