2024 High School Poster Session at St. Joseph’s College

Posted on Saturday, February 3, 2024 by for Awards, St. Joseph's.

On Saturday, February 3, 2024 Midwood Science returned to St. Joseph's University in the Clinton Hill area of Brooklyn for their 26th Annual Research Poster Session for High School Students. We took our biggest crew there ever with 61 students presenting 35 projects. (Taking a group photo was challenging with a crowd that big.) We came back with 3 honorable mentions.

This event is open to all high school students in the New York metro area with research projects in any scientific field and is sponsored by the Chemical Education Committee of the New York Section of the American Chemical Society.
