Congratulations to Emily J. ’20 for winning first place in the STEM Research Poster Competition at the 2019 Florida Regional Junior Science, Engineering, and Humanities Symposium. The three-day conference was held at the University of Florida on January 27-29, 2019.
“I can’t even explain how competitive this event is, and it has been more than 15 years since Canterbury has had a winner. I am so very proud of Emily and all that she has accomplished,” shared Mrs. Kelly Percivall, Upper School Science Teacher.

As the Poster Competition winner, Emily has received a sponsored trip to the National Junior Science and Humanities Symposium to be held in April.

A total of 17 Upper School students attended the conference. They enjoyed touring UF labs and listening to research presentations. Maya A. ’21 also won a special STEAM award for best integration of art and science.
