The 87th Annual South Carolina Academy of Science Meeting was held on Saturday April 5th, 2014 at Trident Technical College in Charleston, South Carolina. It was a very successful day with almost 400 students in attendance. We had high school students come from 8 different high schools from all over the state. These students gave 246 oral presentations on original work in 13 different topical sessions. Additionally, we had undergraduate students come from 10 different colleges around the state. These students gave 35 oral presentations in 9 different topical sessions and presented 29 research posters. One of the highlights of the day was the presentation of the Governor’s Awards which were sponsored by the South Carolina Research Authority and Mead Westvaco. We presented 5 awards to 4 recipients. The details of their awards and all of our student award recipients can be found on our website.

An event of this size is not possible without a great deal of dedication, volunteer hours, and sponsorship. The Academy was tremendously grateful to have Trident Technical College donate the use of the College Center for the day. Trident Technical College also sponsored the pizza party for the Junior Academy that accompanied their awards presentation. Additionally, the Academy was thrilled to have Mr. Craig Charlton from The Boeing Company serve as our Plenary Speaker for the day. He gave a very interesting overview of the presence of Boeing in South Carolina and the products they make here. We also had a tremendous amount of help from our almost 50 volunteer judges who helped judge the high school and undergraduate oral presentations. Finally, the Academy Officers and Councilors were invaluable in making this day a great experience for everyone in attendance. We are grateful to all of our volunteers whose dedication allows the Academy to conduct a meeting where excellence in science and math are the focus.
