The 53rd Annual Tennessee Junior Science and Humanities Symposium (TJSHS) will be March 8-9, 2018.


2018 TN Junior Science and Humanities Symposium Program

We were hoping for some warm sunny weather this week but I just checked it is not looking good. High temperature in Knoxville on Thursday is supposed to be 42 degrees.
That being said. . .
Final notes:
Tours will be of ORNL and the UT College of Veterinary Medicine.
1.  Dress warmly and in comfortable shoes (jeans and tennis shoes are appropriate) as the group will be outside and walking some. Closed toed shoes are MANDATORY for the Manufacturing Demonstration Facility and any visitors without closed-toed shoes will not be able to participate in that part of the visit.
2.  All visitors at ORNL 18 years old or older should have their government issued photo ID with them. Any foreign nationals must bring their passport and visa
3.  Our tour at UT College of Veterinary Medicine will be inside. Remember this is not a petting zoo and NO PHOTOGRAPHY is allow.
Don’t forget Photo Consent forms and please send your Power Point Presentations as soon as possible.


 Presenters send your PowerPoint Presentations to us at when they are finished or bring it with you on a USB jump drive.  It will help if I have them already because our schedule is full. 

Dress for the event is casual but those presenting may want to consider dressing up on Friday.

We look forward to seeing everyone next week.
