Announcement Delayed to Monday, December 12th In order to pick the top 12 projects to present at the symposium, it is critical that a diverse group of judges review papers. A few critical judges will be reviewing projects this weekend. Regardless of whether you paper is chosen to present, you and a chaperone are still invited to attend the overnight event at the Evergreen Aviation Museum where we will be learning the physics of flight, making and launching rockets, and sleeping under the Spruce Goose.


Oregon Junior Science & Humanities Symposium is sponsored by the US Army, Navy, and Air Force and is open to all High School Students from the state of Oregon who are US Citizens. The first round of the competition is a blind judging of student research papers. Twelve student semifinalists along with thirteen additional student participants will be invited to the 2017 Oregon JSHS competition held at The Evergreen Aviation Museum in McMinnville, OR. Students and mentors will be be staying overnight under the famed  "Spruce Goose"  while exploring ideas in engineering, aviation and technology. We will also be building and launching our own rockets. 

The top five finalists will be chosen to go on to the National Competition in April 2017. To learn more about the competition, visit the National JSHS website
