The Patuxent Partnership once again has been awarded the Maryland Junior Science and Humanities Symposium. This is the third year that TPP has collaborated with Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division and St. Mary’s College of Maryland on the event.

The Maryland Junior Science and Humanities Symposium will be held virtually Saturday, March 13, 2021.

More than 120 abstracts were received. The topics range from environmental science to robotics, population genetics, molecular biology, mathematics, computer sciences, and many more.

The Junior Science and Humanities Symposia program is a tri-service – US Army, Navy, and Air Force – sponsored STEM competition which promotes original research and experimentation in the sciences, technology, engineering, and mathematics at the high school level and recognizes students for outstanding achievement.

It 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
  • Advance to the national symposium

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 the US.
