WSAS recently traveled to Washington, D.C., accompanying four, high-achieving, Washington high school students to the American Junior Academy of Science (AJAS) Conference to present their award-winning research to the attendees of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) annual meeting. For the 2019 meeting, our corporate sponsors were Boeing and Vulcan – thank you! Students are also sponsored by generous individual donations to WSAS. WSAS sends the top performing students from the WA State science and engineering fairs to the AJAS meeting each year as part of our commitment to raising the visibility of science education and its impact in WA. Next year, the AJAS conference is coming to Seattle.
