Metro NYC Junior Science and Humanities Symposium 2006

Metro NYC Junior Science and Humanities Symposium 2006

The New York Academy of Sciences

Presented By

Presented by The New York Academy of Sciences and SciEduNet


The Metro NYC Junior Science and Humanities Symposium is an opportunity for students to demonstrate proficiency in higher-order thinking skills through the process of scientific inquiry, writing a scientific paper, and delivering a presentation. The JSHS provides a forum for students to present the results of their original research in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

At the regional level NYC Metro JSHS competition, seventy-five semi-finalists are invited to give ten minute oral presentations discussing their research. JSHS participants are selected based on their performance at the NYCSEF and on the quality of their research paper. Students will be evaluated at the JSHS Semifinals Round on their presentation; these scores will be combined with research paper evaluation scores to select top finalists. Finalists compete for cash and scholarships awards. Five finalists are awarded an expense-paid trip to the National Symposium.
