GSR Students Invited to Present Research

Nine of our Guided Scientific Research students (100% of the class!) have been invited to present their research at the Georgia Junior Science and Humanities Symposium at the end of this month.
These students will present their research either orally or during a poster session at GJSHS, held February 24-26 at the University of Georgia. Only 45 students from the state of Georgia were invited make oral presentations this year, and we have five of them; four of the 15 students from Georgia invited to present their research as posters were Walker students as well!
