The Kansas Junior Academy of Science (KJAS) is an organization for students who are interested in expanding their abilities and accomplishments in science or engineering utilizing mathematical and technological integrations.
REQUIREMENTS AT A GLANCE
(see Submission Requirements page for complete details)
At the State Meeting, students must again submit their written scientific paper and orally present to a panel of judges. Students of the overall winning papers may be selected to represent Kansas as a Delegate at the American Junior Academy of Science meeting which is sponsored by the National Association of the Academies of Sciences and the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). The KJAS is usually able to provide partial funding for students to attend this meeting.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE TO JOIN KJAS?
Any junior high, middle or senior high school student who completes a research project during the year of participation.
Individual students can become members of the KJAS and so can an entire school class or science club. A group membership is individually less costly and has the benefit of including a year's subscription to the Transactions of the Kansas Academy of Science which contains interesting research papers by students and senior scientists from the state of Kansas.
