The Pennsylvania Junior Academy of Science (PJAS) is a statewide organization designed to stimulate and promote interest in science among its members through the development of original research projects and investigations. This project encourages students to actively participate in science and math by following a scientific method to select a project, research the background, formulate a hypothesis, develop an experiment to prove or disprove the hypothesis, and to collect and analyze data from their experiment. Students prepare a written report and give an oral presentation including audiovisuals at a regional competition, and if awarded a red or blue ribbon, move on to the state competition hosted at The Pennsylvania State University – University Park.
