Dependents Schools (DOD), Washington, DC. Pacific Region.
Each year, beginning in the early spring, Department of Defense Dependent Schools, Pacific Region conducts a Junior Science and Humanities Symposium program. The information for putting together such a program is contained in this document. Students are invited to conduct original research in the sciences, mathematics, the humanities, and computer applications that relate to research in those three fields. The research period ends in early spring of the next year. Following conclusion of the research period, students who complete research projects and the writing of research project papers spend a week presenting their research to other students, visiting locations where research is actively being conducted, participating in Japanese-American cultural events and a host of other activities. During the week, three top student researchers are chosen from the participants. Later in the spring, the winning students travel to the National Junior Science and Humanities Symposium in the United States where the first place researcher presents his or her research again. The student who presents his or her paper at the National Symposium competes with other students for an opportunity to make a presentation at the International Junior Science and Humanities Symposium, usually held in London, England, during the following summer.
