Junior Science and Humanities Symposium

Life Sciences Program

JSHS 

The Junior Science and Humanities Symposium (JSHS) for Wyoming and Eastern Colorado

Regional: Friday, March 24, 2017, at the University of Wyoming

JSHS is funded by the Army, Navy and Air Force of the United States of America in order to encourage high school students, grades 9 to 12, to enter college level studies in science and engineering. The students involved come from 48 regions from all parts of the United States, territories, and overseas military base high schools.

The JSHS gives high school students the opportunity to present their scientific research work in front of an audience in much the same way as they would at a professional science meeting. With only slides, overhead, Power Point or backboard they let the audience know what they have done in their chosen research area.

WHEN: 9 A.M. Friday, March 24, 2017

WHERE: Hampton Inn, Laramie, Wyoming (3715 E Grand Ave, Laramie, WY 82070).

There will be only one presentation session (no concurrent sessions) and the number of presenters will be limited according to the number of Finalists that are selected from our pool of applicants.  Submitted papers will be evaluated and the Finalists (presenters) chosen from among them.

The following will be provided for participants by your JSHS:

Rooms- Lodging is available, and participants and their families/teachers/mentors can request lodging for Thursday and/or Friday nights.  As resources permit, lodging may be provided for student speakers, chaperones (teachers, parents, etc.), and guest student observers.

Meals- Lunch and Dinner on Friday will be provided for student speakers, chaperones (teachers, parents, etc.), and guest student observers.  Breakfast is provided in the mornings for all guests of the hotel, so attendees that receive lodging will also receive breakfast the following morning.

*To be accepted: The student must submit a paper describing the science project the student wishes to present by Friday, March 3, 2017.

How do I register?

We are presently making arrangements for all registration and application materials (e.g., your abstract and research paper) to be submitted electronically online.  When that process is complete (estimated March 1), we will provide you a link from this page and additional instructions about how to register for the Symposium and how to submit your materials for the competitive portion of the Symposium.

If you have questions or need additional information:  Please contact Dr. Jonathan Prather, JSHS Regional Director, Jonathan.Prather@uwyo.edu.
