The Texas Junior Science & Humanities Symposium (TJSHS) are to promote original research and experimentation in the sciences, engineering, and mathematics at the high school level, and to publicly recognize students for outstanding achievement. TJSHS provides an opportunity for Texas high school students to present the results of their original research in a professional arena. Students who participate in the symposia also have the opportunity to meet and exchange ideas, interact with practicing researchers, and explore future academic and career opportunities. TJSHS is a research presentation event.

There are a max of 5 participants per school. You submit an abstract, research paper, and give a 12 minute oral presentation with a PPT.
