Phoenix College WAESO and NSF-TRAIN students won first place at the Spring 2019 Arizona-Nevada Academy of  Science meeting in Yuma, Arizona.

Each Spring the Arizona-Nevada Academy of Science hosts an interdisciplinary gathering to discuss science, mathematics, and engineering at an academic institution in either Arizona or Nevada. Faculty, graduate and undergraduate students, resource agency personnel, and others are invited to present their research in all areas of science and mathematics during oral paper sessions or a combined poster session.

The purpose of The Arizona-Nevada Academy of Science is to stimulate scientific research and education; to disseminate scientific knowledge in the various fields of science; to promote fraternal relationships among those engaged in scientific work; to assist in developing and in making known the material and other resources of those two states; to encourage the publication of reports of scientific investigations; and to unify the scientific interests of the region.
