  • 53rd Monmouth Junior Science Symposium

    March 19 & 20, 2015
    Monmouth University - West Long Branch, NJ

    The Monmouth Junior Science Symposium delegation will include the top five paper presenters. They will present their original research at the National Junior Science and Humanities Symposium in Hunt Valley, Maryland on April 29 - May 2. The National JSHS will bring together 230 high school students who qualify for attendance by submitting and presenting original scientific research papers in regional symposia held at universities nationwide.

     

    This year's 2015 MJSS included two topic areas sponsored by the Army. One was for the Best in Nanotechnology, for qualified papers from selected students whose research papers apply to this field. The next was from selected papers that qualify for Best in Advanced Materials Science (Additive Manufacturing), for those students interested in research papers related to materials science. The winners or 1st runner-ups selected from each topic area will receive a 'Tour of Duty' to meet with Army experts, respectively, who support Nanotechnology and Advanced Materials Science.
