Dependents Schools (DOD), Washington, DC. Pacific Region.
This booklet is a program management tool designed for use by high school students and teachers participating in science research programs throughout the United States as well as overseas. The program consists of a symposium during which students are invited to conduct original research in the sciences, mathematics, humanities, and computer applications. Students who complete and write research project papers spend a week presenting their research to other students, visiting research institutes, and participating in cultural activities. From this group, three winners are chosen to present on the national level. One student is subsequently chosen to present on the international level. Information concerning the following are included: objectives; participant eligibility; application form and fee; guidelines for project and judging; abstracts; typing; paper submission; oral presentations; poster sessions; symposium timeline and tentative schedule; and parental permission. The appendices contain: (1) an abstract form; (2) examples of student abstracts; (3) research paper evaluation form; (4) oral presentation evaluation form; (5) student application form; (6) outline for organization of papers and abstracts; and (7) guidelines on conducting research in the sciences.
