Seven high school students from around the Los Angeles area have been invited to present their research to an international audience of scientists at two different scientific conferences to be held later this year.
The students, ages 16, 17 and 18, have completed sophisticated research projects and generated new scientific results because of work they've been doing for about a year at the Jisan Research Institute in Pasadena.
Local youths include Crescenta Valley High School students Ryan Chang and Justin Huang.
All seven students did work at Jisan Research Institute. The institute involves young people in cutting-edge scientific research that is under way at the lab. The laboratory has two full-time scientists, and it has had active collaborations with the California Institute of Technology and the University of Southern California.
