51st Monmouth Junior Science Symposium
March 21 & 22, 2013
West Long Branch, NJ
The primary goal of the Monmouth Junior Science Symposium (MJSS) is to promote research and experimentation in the sciences, engineering, and mathematics at the high school level, and to publicly recognize students for outstanding achievement. The two-day event includes presentations from New Jersey high school students on their individual science research projects. Schools are welcome to register and attend as observers.
Following the presentations at Monmouth University on March 21, 2013, all students and their teachers are invited to attend the MJSS Poster Presentation. A science based scavenger hunt will be held during this general poster session where students compete for ribbons, gift certificates, etc. The students whose papers have been selected for presentation at (Monmouth University) or poster presentation at the MJSS Banquet (Doubletree Hotel, Tinton Falls) will be notified January 2013. Papers not selected for the above will be invited to participate in the MJSS General Poster Session (Anacon Hall, Monmouth University) March 21, 2013. General Poster Session participation will be limited to no more than four posters per each participating school.
