Discovery Students Excel at the 2017 Junior Science & Humanities Symposium
Twelve Spring Valley Discovery students submitted research papers to the 2017 Junior Science and Humanities Symposium (JSHS) competition sponsored by the Department of Defense. Based on their written research papers the following five students were chosen as Semifinalists (out of almost 90 research papers submitted): Jenning Chen (12), Sarayu Das (11), Wenxin Fan (12), Ishita Kapoor (11), and Sarah Mott (11). The oral presentation portion of the competition took place on January 20, 2017 at the University of South Carolina.
In the finalist round students earned the following places: Jenning Chen (2nd overall), Wenxin Fan (4th overall), and Ishita Kapoor (5th overall). These students will have the opportunity to travel to the National Junior Science and Humanities Symposium in San Diego, CA in April (all expenses paid).
In addition, the following students presented in non-semifinalist sessions and earned the following places:
Congratulations to these students and their research teachers:
