Florida Junior Academy of Sciences Invites 28 Stone Researchers!

FJAS 2013
In the professional world of science and scientists, an invitation to present at the annual meeting of the Academy of Sciences is the ultimate acknowledgement of the value of one’s research. It follows after the honor of being published in a major peer reviewed journal.

The Florida Junior Academy of Sciences convention was held at Barry University in Miami Shores concurrent with the Florida Academy of Sciences 77th annual meeting. The judges were senior academy scientists.

At Stone we think this is an honor and valuable experience for our junior scientists. As a recognition of their hard work, Stone Middle School received 28 of the 40 bids awarded to middle school students in the state of Florida! Congratulations to all of these Stone Middle Schools for receiving an invitation from this prestigious organization:
