    Junior Science Humanities Symposium

    Submit Research Papers for the Junior Science and Humanities Symposium (see guidelines to submit written work due Dec 1) One or more of your students can submit a written paper describing his or her original research in an area of science or humanities. These presentations are often based on work students have done in school research projects, for science fairs, or for other research presentations. A panel of USC faculty members, Industry Scientists, and Government Scientists will consider these written papers and the top five will be selected for presentation in competition at the full symposium. The symposium presentations will be judged by another committee of scientists and by everyone who attends the symposium. We will pick the top five papers and of these five the top three presenters will win scholarships. All five will have their expenses paid to attend the National JSHS Meeting in Norfolk Virginia, April 15 - 18, 2020. All others who submit a paper will have the opportunity to present that paper in a series of concurrent small symposia. Prizes and/or Honors Certificates will be given for the best presentations in each concurrent symposium.

    Science Experiments

    Hi Everyone, I was wondering if anyone has any ideas/experience etc. with science experiments. I want to do more hands on science with my boys (ages 5, 11, &13) but I have no idea where to get ideas, supplies. I thought about just going to Walmart and looking around for things I can use, however I really do not have a whole lot of "free" time to spend looking. I've done some looking online but the various "kits" seem way too expensive and flimsy. We're starting into our 3rd week of classes and I'm bored with the book work. I want to encourage their interest in and fascination for all science offers but i'm struggling to put it together. Thanking you for taking time to help.
  24. I've come to realize I really don't like teaching two different science programs to my older kids. Next year, my oldest child will be in 9th grade and my middle child will be in 6th. Can anyone recommend a curriculum that would suit both kids with options for a more in-depth (high school level) course of study for the 9th grader and still cover a decent amount of material for the 6th grader? Thanks in advance for your help!

    Fertilized Chicken Eggs

    I have 18 breeds of chickens and can supply fertilized eggs to those who live in the Columbia area. All you need is an incubator. If you are interested in hatching some chicks as part of a life cycle lesson, let me know. I can't guarantee any one particular breed, but I can supply a rainbow of differently colored eggs. You can reply here or email me at frankhdgs@gmail.com .
