Welcome to the Greater Philadelphia Junior Science and Humanities Symposia (JSHS) Program. Temple University is host to the 2017 Regional JSHS symposium held March 11, 2017 in Philadelphia, PA.
<< 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:
Who attends JSHS?
High school students interested in STEM studies can participate either as a presenter or as a student delegate. The Greater Philadelphia Junior Science and Humanities Symposium will be March 11, 2017, at Temple University. Up to 40 high school students and one teacher from each high school may participate.
Who can present at the Regional JSHS?
Any high school student from the Greater Philadelphia Region may submit a paper for consideration.
How do I present at the Regional JSHS?
STEP 2: Students conduct original research.
The research presentation may not exceed 12 minutes, followed by a maximum 6-minute question period. A session moderator will aid the student speaker in maintaining this schedule and in fielding questions from the audience. The
procedure for maintaining the time includes a 10-minute signal for the student, and finally a 12-minute signal. At the 12-minute point, the student speaker must stop the presentation even if he or she has not finished.
Set-up time for the presentation is a maximum of 2 minutes. This set-up time is not included in the above presentation time.
Following the presentation, the session moderator will ask for audience questions. The speaker may entertain questions while the exchange appears interesting and relevant. Questions intended to harass the student speakers will not be allowed by the session moderator.
The speaker should repeat a question before answering so the audience may understand the entire dialogue.
What if my abstract is not accepted?
Students whose research submission is not accepted for presentation at the Regional JSHS but is complete and meets all paper format guidelines will automatically be invited to attend as a student delegate or poster presenter.
Deadline for paper submission: February 27, 2017
Students who are selected to make presentations at the Greater Philadelphia Regional JSHS have an opportunity to win undergraduate, tuition-based scholarships and cash awards from $200 to $2,000.
The Academy of Applied Sciences will distribute $4,500 in academic scholarships to the top three regional finalists:
The top five finalists are invited to advance to the National JSHS. Two of the five finalists will orally present their research in competition for military-sponsored scholarships; three of the five finalists will present their research in poster sessions and receive recognition and cash awards. National JSHS scholarships are awarded as follows.

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 48 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 Academy of Applied Science, a non-profit educational organization in Concord, New Hampshire, administers the National JSHS Program. The regional JSHS at Temple University is co-operatively sponsored by the College of Science and Technology.
