The Junior Science and Humanities Symposium: Management and Operation, 2002-2003.
Schlenker, Richard M.
This document provides the administrative, management, and supervisory guidance necessary to successfully conduct and support grades 7-12 science symposia. It was developed as the operations manual for the Pacific Region Junior Science and Humanities Symposium (PJSHS) program for 2002-2003 which is an 10-month, precollege student research program held in Japan. The theme is Super ScienceComputers, Conductors, Colliders. The program includes a one-week symposium of student delegates (grades 8-12) who have completed research projects in the sciences or have developed a science research proposal. Students who attend the symposium present research findings and research proposals to symposium participants, visit research laboratories, and attend science research lectures. Symposium objectives include: (1) to promote research and experimentation in the sciences, mathematics, and engineering in grades 7-12; (2) recognize the significance of research in human affairs and the importance of humane and ethical principles in the application of research results; (3) identify talented youth and their teachers, recognize their accomplishments at symposia, and encourage their continued interest and participation; (4) expand the horizons of research-oriented students by exposing them to opportunities in the academic, industrial, and governmental communities; and (5) increase the number of future adults capable of conducting research. The importance of humane conduct in science research and the humane application of research results are stressed. This document contains information necessary to administer the PJSHS program in participating schools, and school districts of the Department of Defense Dependent Schools, Pacific Area. (KHR)
