Welcome to the Ohio Junior Science and Humanities Symposia (JSHS) Program. Bowling Green State University is host to the 2019 Regional JSHS symposium held March 13-15, 2019 in Bowling Green, OH.


<< CLICK HERE TO REGISTER >>


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.

 

Who attends JSHS?

Ohio high school students interested in STEM studies can participate either as a presenter or as a student delegate. The Ohio Junior Science and Humanities Symposium will be March 13-15, 2019, at Bowling Green State University.

          Sponsorship

          JSHS is a Tri-Service – U.S. Army, Navy and Air Force −program that encourages high school students to conduct original research in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).  JSHS is a collaborative effort between the research arm of the Department of Defense and nationwide colleges and universities. JSHS aims to prepare and support students to contribute as future scientists and engineers, conducting STEM research on behalf of or directly for the Department of Defense (DoD), federal research laboratories to help advance the nation's scientific and technological progress. Through JSHS, over 8,000 youth annually compete in 47 regional symposia covering the U.S., Puerto Rico, and DoD Dependent Schools in Europe and the Pacific to receive recognition, incentives, and scholarships for their research achievements.


          The Ohio JSHS at Bowling Green State University is cooperatively sponsored by the College of Education & Human Development and the Northwest Ohio Center for Excellence in STEM Education.
