This document reviews the Pacific Region Junior Science and Humanities Symposium (PJSHS) program for 2003-2004 which is a 10-month, precollege student research program held in Japan. The theme is AtmosphereThe Other Ocean. The program includes a one-week symposium of student delegates who have completed research projects in the sciences or have developed a science research proposal. Students who attend the symposium present research findings and research proposals to symposium participants, visit research laboratories, and attend science research lectures. Symposium objectives include: (1) to promote research and experimentation in the sciences, mathematics, and engineering in grades 7-12; (2) recognize the significance of research in human affairs and the importance of humane and ethical principles in the application of research results; (3) identify talented youth and their teachers, recognize their accomplishments at symposia, and encourage their continued interest and participation; (4) expand the horizons of research-oriented students by exposing them to opportunities in the academic, industrial, and governmental communities; and (5) increase the number of future adults capable of conducting research. The importance of humane conduct in science research and the humane application of research results are stressed. This document provides the guidance necessary for successful conduct and support for grades 7-12 programs in the Pacific Region JSHS in DoDDS and DDESS schools, and districts of the Department of Defense Education Activity, Pacific Area.
