KAS highlighting students selected to attend national meeting
The students earned their invitations to serve as delegates at the March meeting in Washington D.C. by giving highly rated research presentations during the 2022 Junior Academy of Science meeting, which was held in conjunction with the KAS Annual Meeting in November. The D.C. meeting will give students opportunities to share their research with others in the national academy, receive feedback and encouragement from scientists, and become inductees in the American Junior Academy of Science.
KAS is seeking support to help make the trip to D.C. possible for students and chaperones. Please join our efforts! Help give our state’s future science leaders an unforgettable and encouraging experience by visiting our fundraising page: https://www.givegab.com/campaigns/scientific-discovery
“Each year, I am amazed at the research being conducted by high school students here in Kentucky,” said Melony Stambaugh, Director of the Kentucky Junior Academy of Science. “The annual meeting of the Kentucky Academy of Science is a great place to bring together the KJAS students as early as middle school to begin creating those connections which allow the students to see a wide variety of people doing all types of research. These connections expand the students from the classroom into futures they may never have ever imagined. Seeing the continuum from middle school and high school students to undergraduate, graduate, and professional scientists is rewarding and a valuable experience.”
