Junior Science and Engineering for Humanities Symposium Update
The Junior Science and Engineering for Humanities Symposium (JSEHS) was held at Maryville University on March 12 and 13th. Students from across the state submit formal scientific papers and the top six in each discipline are selected to present at the symposium. Those achieving this honor from MRH included Paul Meuser in the field of Chemistry as well as Autumn Martin and Natalie Mitten in Behavioral Science. Each presented before a panel of professors and group of their peers. The top presenter in each field was selected as a finalist. Natalie Mitten was chosen as the finalist for her work on Gender Schema and Depressive Symptomatology. All finalists presented to the entire group in attendance at the symposium, who selected the top two presenters to represent our state at the National Symposium. Mitten won second place and will travel to the Washington D.C. symposium next month. Congratulations to these students for their impressive work and accomplishments.
