The Junior Science and Humanities Symposia (JSHS) Program invites high school students to submit a paper on an original research investigation in the sciences, engineering, or mathematics. 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.
All students in grades 9-12 in the DoDDS-Europe area are eligible to participate.

Jessica email after JSHS participation (after completion of JSHS in 2014)
Dear Mr. Zimmer,
First, I would like to thank you for being a mentor and for helping out with this amazing program.
After JSHS I realized I definitely will be attending college in hopes of attaining a doctorate degree; I'm leaning towards Neuroscience at the
moment. I have not yet decided if I will be more of a clinical doctor or a research one, however after JSHS I'm
trying my best to get internships and volunteer with Researchers. I will be attending University of Tampa on a partial scholarship, and will be applying to the SMART scholarship program next year, as well as ROTC. I have received an invitation to apply next year for a paid internship assisting with research, by the National Institute of Health. I also will be assisting a professor at my University with some of his research, mostly cleaning petri dishes but it's a start! I just thought it would be nice to update you, as you asked me to if I get any research opportunities. JSHS truly opened my eyes, sadly the videos I took got uploaded to a school computer but I never got the chance to share them with you before I graduated. If I ever get a hold of the video I made, I'll send it to you.
Once I returned from JSHS Ms. Hess asked me to speak to all of her science students about my experience, I did, and I'm hoping I inspired some of them to try JSHS next year. I took my AP Biology and AP Statistics exam, and passed! YAY! This led to me receiving 7 credit hours towards school. Some other news after I returned, although unrelated to science, I got my artwork displayed in the European Art Show for DODEA, won a major award for my News Report for the DODEA Student Film Festival, and got my commercial for our local Bazaar chosen to be on AFN, or on the Website for the Kaiserslautern area. Overall, JSHS was an amazing experience and I would not trade it for anything. It truly inspired me to do more, and learn more. Thank you very much, for everything. If there is ever an opening in JSHS I hope to be a mentor or a judge one day.
