Three St. John’s seniors represented St. John’s School and Guam in the 20th Annual Japan Super Science Fair (JSSF) from November 1st to 5th. Hosted by Ritsumeikan High School in Kyoto, Japan, this was their first in-person science fair in three years. About 35 schools from 18 countries and regions attended this international student conference.
Students had the opportunity to present their innovative research works, participate in various learning and cultural activities, and collaborate and build friendships with like-minded peers.
The following students attend this year’s JSSF:
- Elizabeth Chua (12th grade) – Utilizing Existing Conductive Structures in Solar Thermoelectric Generators
- Miwa Gudmundsen (12th grade) – Characterizing Different Coral Species’ Bleaching Susceptibility Under Heat Stress
- Vaishnavi Khandelwal (12th grade) – Determining and Analyzing the Substances Present in Over-the-Counter Analgesics
The selected students were accompanied by St. John’s science teachers, Ms. Arlene Chua and Ms. Kathy Yang.
