Wilkes University Hosts PA Junior Academy of Science

As a reminder, Wilkes will be hosting the Pennsylvania Junior Academy of Science (PJAS) on Saturday, March 5, 2016.  This is the first Saturday of our spring break.  As last year, there will be anywhere from 500-700 high school students that will register to attend this event. 

We will be using all classrooms on campus for the student presentations; this includes all rooms in Cohen, Stark, Breiseth, Kirby, and UCOM.  We have every classroom on campus reserved for this event.  Please remember to not schedule anything in any classroom during this entire day. 

There will be professional staff in each room with the high school students.  Faculty, please lock up any materials you may not want to leave out, just in case.  Please note: Faculty do not need to be on campus, unless you sign up to be a judge.

Thank you all for your cooperation!
