JSJSS Mission

The primary goal of the Jersey Shore Junior Science Symposium (JSJSS) is to promote research and experimentation in the sciences, engineering, and mathematics at the high school level, and to publicly recognize students for outstanding achievement. The two-day event includes presentations from New Jersey high school students on their individual science research projects. Schools are welcome to register and attend as observers.

The Army Education Outreach Program’s (AEOP) Junior Science and Humanities Symposia (JSHS) Program is jointly sponsored by the Army, Navy, and Air Force, in cooperation with leading research universities throughout the nation. The Department of Defense generously provides funding for the National symposium and JSHS scholarships.
