Braxton-2019 Symposium Winners

 Science Symposium

This page provides the basic information and materials HSTA students need to complete their annual research projects and participate in the Science Symposium. Students should discuss project-related questions with their HSTA teacher, field site coordinator (FSC), or community research associate (CRA). 

Students submit annual research project ideas for approval to CRAs .

Students then conduct approved research under the guidance of their teachers, FSCs, and CRAs.

In April and May, students present their research projects and findings for critical review at the annual Science Symposium associated with their particular region. Presentations are scored by panels of judges. Presentations are attended by fellow students, teachers, family members, and community members. Materials
