A History of Women in Science

"Women have...contributed significantly to the world of science, but despite the strong presence of women in science-related fields, history has not given them the credit that they deserve. For that reason, it is crucial that people learn who these women of science were so that future generations are taught and inspired by their accomplishments."

A great source to learn about 20 important Women in Science

Junior Science and Humanities Symposia (JSHS) Program STEM Competition

The Junior Science and Humanities Symposia (JSHS) Program is a tri-service – U.S. Army, Navy, and Air Force – sponsored STEM competition which promotes original research and experimentation in the sciences, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) at the high school level and publicly recognizes students for outstanding achievement. By connecting talented students, their teachers, and research professionals at affiliated symposia and by rewarding research excellence, JSHS aims to widen the pool of trained talent prepared to conduct research and development vital to our nation.

Endorsed by the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP), JSHS regional and national symposium are held during the academic year and reach more than 8,000 high school students and teachers throughout the United States, Puerto Rico, and the Department of Defense Schools of Europe and the Pacific Rim. Students must first participate in their regional symposia where they compete for selection to present at the national symposium each year.
