Missouri Junior Science, Engineering and Humanities Symposium
Maryville University is proud to host the Missouri Region Junior Science, Engineering and Humanities 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, is a celebration of science and student achievement. 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 role of humanities 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, held March 14-15, 2014, was 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 is tentatively scheduled for late April, 2014 in Washington, D.C.
The theme for the 2014 symposium: EARTH: Exploring Our Stewardship
A huge thank you to all who attended the 2014 event…our second year of hosting! Your valuable feedback will help shape and guide our plans for 2015.
