STEM COMPETITION PROMOTING ORIGINAL STUDENT RESEARCH AND EXPERIMENTATION

The Junior Science and Humanities Symposia (JSHS) is designed to challenge and engage students (grades 9–12) in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM). The three-day event is organized by the United States Army, Navy, and Air Force and administered by the National Science Teachers Association, a nonprofit STEM education organization. Individual students compete for scholarships and recognition by presenting their original research before a panel of judges and an audience of their peers. The event includes hands-on workshops, panel discussions, career exploration, research lab visits, and networking. In 2018 Eshika Saxena, from Bellevue, Washington, was the winner in the engineering and technology category. She was recognized for HemaCam, a computer vision-enhanced mobile phone imaging system for automated screening of hematological diseases with convolutional neural networks. By participating in the regional and national symposia, students develop skills to help prepare for undergraduate and graduate pursuits—applying science content to solve a problem or gain new knowledge, writing a paper, and communicating results. Interested students and their teachers are encouraged to contact the JSHS regional symposium director in their area to obtain application guidelines and materials.
