Northern New England Junior Science and Humanities Symposium


View this Opportunity's Website 


Academic Level:
High School Students

Description:
The major activities of the NNE-JSHS are to conduct a program in which selected high school students can present the results of their original research in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) in either an oral or poster session. Students have an opportunity to meet other students from the northern New England regions with similar interests in STEM research, visit research laboratories at the University of New Hampshire and speak with professionals in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

Initially, up to five high school students and one teacher from high schools in the Northern New England states of Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont can attend the symposium. There are no registration fees. Accommodations and meals during the symposium are covered by the symposium sponsors. Travel expenses to and from the symposium, personal meals outside of the program schedule, and your miscellaneous purchases are not covered.

Students who are selected to make presentations at the regional NNE-JSHS have an opportunity to win scholarship and cash awards from $200 to $2,000. Award amounts may be subject to change upon availability from the sponsors. The top 5 winners of the NNE-JSHS will be invited to an expense-paid trip to the National JSHS Symposium. The first and second place winners of the NNE-JSHS will have an opportunity to compete for additional scholarship awards from $4,000 to $12,000 at the National JSHS, as referred to in the Awards section. The 54th National JSHS host will be held April in Dayton, Ohio.

OBJECTIVES

To promote experience in research and experimentation in sciences, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) at the high school level.

To provide an opportunity for students to publicly present their research.

To expand the horizons of research-oriented high school students by offering opportunities in academic and governmental communities.

To recognize students and their teachers for outstanding achievement.

To encourage continuing interest in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) to widen the pool of trained scientific and engineering talent prepared to conduct research and development.
