Academy of Applied Science
: Junior Science and Humanities Symposia (JSHS)
JSHS is designed to challenge and engage students (Grades 9-12) in science, technology, engineering ormathematics (STEM). Individual students may present the results of their STEM research in competition for scholarships and otherrecognition at 48 university-held regional symposia.
Opportunities for hands-on workshops, panel discussions, career exploration, research lab visits andnetworking with peers and STEM professionals are a part of each symposium. By participating in regional and national symposia,students may...
Participate in a forum honoring individual achievement in STEM
Qualify for significant scholarships and other recognition
Network to enrich understanding of STEM pursuits beyond high school;
Advance in statewide, regional, national and international symposia
Develop skills to help prepare for undergraduate and graduate pursuits.

: The National Academies
The National Academy of Sciences, National Academy of Engineering, Institute of Medicine, andNational Research Council are private, nonprofit institutions that provide expert advice on some of the most pressing challengesfacing the nation and the world. Known collectively as the National Academies, our organization produces groundbreakingreports that have helped shape sound policies, inform public opinion, and advance the pursuit of science, engineering, andmedicine. Scientific and technological literacy is essential to understand the world, confront environmental and health issues, andprepare to enter a workplace that depends increasingly on science and technology. We offer a variety of resources to promotehigh-quality education in science, engineering, and mathematics.
Several National Research Council booklets offer basic information on timely topics in science such asevolution and climate change that teachers can draw upon when planning lessons. Web and classroom activities from the MarianKoshland Science Museum help students use critical analysis to confront real-world problems. In addition, the NationalAcademies have produced dozens of reports to guide educators and policymakers in improving science, technology, mathematics,and engineering instruction at all grade levels -- from preschool through graduate school.

STEM Resources - Tennessee
: Tennessee actively supports STEM Education. Understanding Science, Technology, Engineering, andMathematics (STEM) topics is increasingly important to fully participate in society. STEM content comes alive when studentsconsistently experience it during hands-on learning situations that seamlessly weave together the four sub-disciplines thatcomprise the STEM acronym.
The goals for developing these STEM Resources were twofold. We identified major topics that were of current interest to STEM teachers and scoured the Internet to locate websites that were of particularly high-quality. STEMWebLinks is where these materials are located. The second goal was to provide examples of instructional materials developed by practicing teachers using tools available at STEMresources.com. A large collection of these materials can be found in the TeacherWork Samples section.
