High School Research Symposium

The Michigan High School Math & Science Symposium (MHSMSS) will be held on Friday, April 28, 2017 in the Andrews University Howard Performing Arts Center (HPAC), located in Berrien Springs, MI. Registration fees paid before April 10 are $20 for presenters and $10 for observers. (The fees jump to $25 and $15 respectively after that date.) Registration checks are to be made out to Berrien RESA, and mailed to: Berrien RESA, Attn: Tonya Snyder, PO Box 364, Berrien Springs, MI 49103. Registration fees cover morning refreshments, lunch, program, and the MHSMSS abstract booklet. This abstract booklet contains the proceedings of the symposium spotlighting the students presentations and achievement in science. It is sent to all colleges and universities in Michigan.

Students have three ways to participate in the Symposium. Traditionally, the symposium gives students who have worked on a science research project under the mentorship of a teacher or scientist the opportunity to give an oral presentation of their research findings to a group of peers in a setting that resembles a meeting of professional scientists. Colleges and universities have looked very favorably upon students who have presented their research in this type of forum. Many former participants have received recognition and scholarships for the research work they have done.

Students who are just beginning their research as 9th or 10th graders may choose to apply for the limited number of poster presentation slots available. Due to space restraints, we can accept only the first twenty posters registered.

As in the past, teachers are invited to bring students as observers who may be interested in research or contemplating a project for the next academic year. We will also be asking teachers to volunteer to be room moderators in the oral presentation rooms. They will introduce the presenters and monitor the question and answer period.
