Congratulations to both Natalie and Neha, our 2019 STARS students. They were both chosen for a Partnership of Research Institutions Award for Excellence in Research.
The awardees were selected after they presented their research papers to their peers, parents and research mentors at the conclusion of the program on July 19.
“The evaluation scores from the panel of scientists who reviewed the research papers were the best in the history of the award,” said STARS Director Kenneth R. Mares, a member of the Department of Biology at the University of Missouri–St. Louis.
The students will receive their awards during ceremonies at their schools or school district boards of education meetings.
