Do a science research project. Research you have done this academic year, the summer before or the spring semester before that, after last years local paper reading, is subject to being presented this year.
Prepare an abstract of your work
Prepare a written paper of your work – lab report
Prepare an oral presentation of your work as a power point.
Record your ppt as a 12 min presentation in zoom (must be zoom to be compressed enough to transfer).
Present your work at one of the local competitions through AMSTI site near you. Share your zoom recording with Dr. Jones, and participate in the AMSTI-site’s zoom meeting. In this meeting, you will give a 2 minute introduction and then defend your project for six minutes. If your experimental design is solid, the local judges may qualify you to present your work at the regional competition (AL Regional (state) competition).
Register through ideal logic for state competition (see link below (TBD)) to sign up for the regional competition. You will be asked to upload your paper, SOA and an abstract.
A hard copy of your paper is needed at the State Presentation. Retrieve these if you qualify to go onto finals in the afternoon of competition. One paper from each category will go onto finals. If you qualify for finals, you are invited to national JSHS national competition and we will rank you to assign your participation at JSHS. See www.JSHS.org
If you have any general questions, please email Dr. Mark T Jones at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Participants in AJAS should always remember their research can be the cornerstone of their Gorgas scholarship application. See the Gorgas link from the home page.
