JUNIOR SCIENCE AND HUMANITIES SYMPOSIUM
The City of Philadelphia and Temple University’s College of Science and Technology are proud to present the Greater Philadelphia Regional Junior Science and Humanities Symposium (JSHS). JSHS is designed to challenge, engage, and publicly recognize students (Grades 9-12) conducting research in the sciences, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM). Individual students compete for scholarships and recognition by presenting the results of their original research efforts before a panel of judges and an audience of their peers. Opportunities for career exploration, research lab visits, peer discussions, and networking are planned. By participating in regional and national symposia, students may participate in a forum honoring individual achievement in STEM, network with peers who have similar interests, hear research presentations by other students, develop skills to help prepare for undergraduate and graduate pursuits in STEM fields, hear nationally renowned scientists speak on their work, qualify for significant scholarships and other recognition, and advance to the national symposium.
Thank you to everyone who attended the 2017 Greater Philadelphia Regional Junior Science and Humanities Symposium! We will begin recruiting students and mentors for the 2018 JSHS in October.
