Academic Level:
High School Students

The major activities of the NNE & SNE JSHS are to conduct a program in which selected high school students can present the results of their original research in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) in either an oral or poster session. Students have an opportunity to meet other students from the regions with similar interests in STEM research, visit research laboratories at the University of New Hampshire and speak with professionals in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

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:

-Participate in a forum honoring individual achievement in STEM;

-Network with peers who have similar interests;

-Hear research presentations by other students;

-Develop skills to help prepare for undergraduate and graduate pursuits in STEM fields;

-Hear nationally renowned scientists speak on their work;

-Qualify for significant scholarships and other recognition; and

-Advance to the national symposium.

There is no registration fee to apply or to participate. technology, engineering and mathematics.
