Junior Academy

Experimental confirmation of a prediction is merely a measurement.
An experiment disproving a prediction is a discovery.

The Junior Academy of the Washington Academy of Sciences provides professional scientists and technologists from over 65 learned societies to work with students judging science fairs. A number of our students have gone on to regional and national recognition and have continued their projects into professional scientific investigations.

Remember kids, the only difference between screwing around and science is writing it down.
