Junior Science and Humanities Symposium is a U.S. Army, Navy, and Air Force sponsored STEM competition for 9-12th grade students in the United States and at international DoDEA schools to conduct original research. The Virtual Mentorship role is ideal for DoD S&Es, STEM professionals, educators, and academic researchers pursuing a STEM degree, either civilian or military, interested in providing virtual mentorship to students during the JSHS competition. Virtual Mentors answer student questions, provide support, and feedback on our virtual mentoring platform Chronus. Mentors inspire students to challenge themselves in their original research and explore STEM career possibilities by sharing their expertise with students during the months leading up to Regional Judging.
Why Mentor Virtually?
Each year, JSHS students connect with mentors in their neighborhoods. These mentors play an important role in student success throughout JSHS. We know students benefit from mentorship but not all students have access to available mentors. This year, JSHS is offering virtual mentoring to connect students and mentors online so that all students have the same opportunity to benefit from mentorship. Through virtual mentorship, we look forward to providing enriching experiences for students as they connect to mentors from U.S. Army, Navy, and Air Force research labs, educators, and academic researchers.
