For the past few months, students from the seventh and eighth grades have been preparing to present at the Region 3 PJAS (Pennsylvania Junior Academy of Science) competition held at Northampton County Community College. Students choose a topic in math, the sciences or engineering. The Pennsylvania Junior Academy of Science (PJAS) is a statewide organization of junior and senior high school students designed to stimulate and promote interest in science among its members through the development of research projects and investigations.
This year we have 23 students who will share their research and data to a panel of judges on Saturday, February 24. Students are presenting projects in math, computer science, engineering, biochemistry, microbiology, physics, chemistry and environmental science this year. For those selected to advance, the 84th annual PJAS State Competition will occur on May 20, 21, and 22 at The Pennsylvania State University in University Park.
Good luck to our PJAS participants!
