Arkansas Regional Junior Science and Humanities Symposium
The 2020 arkansas JSHS will be held march 13-14
The Arkansas Regional Junior Science and Humanities Symposium (AJSHS) serves as a regional qualifier for the National Junior Science and Humanities Symposium (JSHS) and is typically held the 2nd full weekend of March each year on the campus of Arkansas Tech University.
What is the National JSHS Program?
The Junior Science and Humanities Symposia (JSHS) promote original research and experimentation in the STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) disciplines at the high school level and publicly recognize students for outstanding achievement in these fields. By connecting talented students, their teachers, and research professionals at affiliated symposia and by rewarding research excellence, JSHS aims to widen the pool of trained talent prepared to conduct research and development vital to our nation. For more information about the National JSHS Program please visit their website (http://www.jshs.org).
The goals of Arkansas JSHS mirror those of the National JSHS:
- To promote research and experimentation in the STEM disciplines at the high school level.
- To recognize the significance of research in human affairs, and the importance of humane and ethical principles in the application of research results.
- To search out talented youth and their teachers, recognize their accomplishments, and encourage their continued interest and participation in the STEM disciplines.
- To expand the horizons of research oriented students by exposing them to opportunities in the academic, industrial and governmental communities.
- To increase the number of future adults capable of conducting research and development
