Missouri Junior Science and Engineering for Humanity Symposium

Thursday, March 17 – Friday, March 18, 2016
Maryville University, St. Louis, MO

The 2015 Missouri symposium theme: Health for Humanity

Maryville University is proud to host the Missouri Region Junior Science and Engineering for Humanity Symposium. For over forty years, the Missouri JSEHS has provided our state’s high school students the opportunity to network with other students and community scientists, share original research and compete for prizes and scholarships.

This annual event, supported through a grant from the U.S. Army Research Office and endorsed by the National Association of Secondary School Principals, celebrates science, student achievement and teachers who support both. Students, accompanied by their sponsoring teacher, will spend two days engaged in activities devoted to science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM).

This program recognizes the human condition at all levels of exploration.  Submitted research papers will be evaluated with an underlying precept…that the best research and applied solutions reflect an understanding of and an attempt to enrich, at some basic level, the human experience.

The Missouri Symposium is one of forty-eight regional symposia held at universities nationwide.   Winners of the regional event proceed to the National JSHS program (www.jshs.org) which occurs in late spring.

A huge thank you to all who attended the 2014 event…our second year of hosting! Your valuable feedback led to fundamental changes to our program schedule. Please note, this year’s program will be held on Thursday and Friday. See you in March!
