Students from the Chesapeake Bay Governor’s School attended the 27th Virginia Science and Humanities Symposium held in Madison Union at James Madison University on March 14-15. The symposium brings together selected high school student scientists to present the findings of their independent research at a regional symposium where they are judged by no less than three experts in their field. Additional sponsors for the Virginia Junior Science and Humanities Symposium (JSHS) are the College of Mathematics and Science and the Office of Sponsored Programs at James Madison University, and the regional director is Dr. Thomas DeVore. 

At the Virginia regional JSHS meeting, 90 student projects were presented in the following categories: Math/Computer Science/Engineering; Life Sciences; Environmental Sciences; Physical Sciences/Chemistry/Physics; Biomedical/Molecular/Cellular Biology; Medicine and Health/Behavioral Science. Students presented a 12-minute Powerpoint presentation of their research followed by 5 minutes of questioning from the judges.
