JSHS is a prestigious program that promotes original research and experimentation in the sciences and publicly recognizes high school students for outstanding achievement. Students enter the competition by submitting an application describing research they have conducted in different categories including the behavioral and social sciences, biological sciences, chemical and physical sciences, engineering, and mathematics. Midwood had one semifinalist this year.

  • Vernon Wu
