Paige E. Brown, who invented a phosphorous-eating filter and Kaisa Crawford-Taylor, who created a computer program to shift through a constellation of 2.7 million objects to discover binary black holes in deep space, were among the 240 elite high school students at the 54th National Junior Science and Humanities Symposium (JSHS) in Dayton, Ohio. During JSHS, students engage in STEM research and disciplines, while applying to compete for scholarships and recognition by present­ing their results in front a panel of judges and an audience of their peers. JSHS gives young men and women a chance to showcase their work and receive realistic feedback from experts in their fields.
