The Texas Junior Science & Humanities Symposium (TJSHS) promotes original research and experimentation in the sciences, engineering, and mathematics at the high school level, and 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.
