The South Carolina Academy of Science is a non-profit organization running many entities in South Carolina such as Discovery Fair, Junior Academy Workshops and an Annual Meeting (forum for students to present papers). The council of SCAS is staffed by non-paid science and educational professionals from throughout South Carolina who volunteer thousands of hours annually to support the advancement of critical needs areas such as science, math and engineering for the benefit of the youth of South Carolina. Funds raised are used entirely to support students' research, awards and grants, and for travel expenses to the International Fair, as well as for many other national programs for students.
