High School Science Symposium

High School Science Symposium

The 2024 Symposium will be held on Tuesday, October 1 in person at Cincinnati Children's Burnet Campus.

The High School Science Symposium is a one-day event for Cincinnati area high school juniors and seniors hosted at Cincinnati Children's.

The purpose of the annual High School Science Symposium is to stimulate outstanding high school science students' interest in pursuing careers in biomedical/allied health sciences and medicine by allowing them to meet and learn first-hand about the work of doctors, scientists, and allied health professionals. Students will learn about the work they are doing to find new treatments and cures for childhood diseases and improve the outcomes for children today. Our program was featured in the Cincinnati Children's community benefit report.

Cincinnati Tri-State Area High Schools are invited to bring two juniors and/or seniors who are interested in more information about careers in biomedical sciences. A teacher/school representative must register the students and attend the event as a chaperone.

Online pre-registration is required. Schools will be admitted on a first come, first served basis and only one teacher / faculty member from each school will be able to register.

Steps to Register

The 2024 registration information will be updated in Spring 2024. The teacher who completes the registration will receive an email with further instructions about forms and signing up for breakout sessions. If you have any questions or problems with the application process, email HSScienceSymposium@cchmc.org.

Symposium Schedule

Pre-registered teachers will bring their students to the Burnet Campus for the event. A schedule for the fall event will be released later in the year.

Access to Pre-Recorded Breakout Session Career Presentations

Below is a list of previous presenters and recordings about their presentations in years past. This is not a comprehensive list of the presenters who may be present in 2024, but it can serve as a good starting point as students begin to explore their specific interests.

All presentations are included on this playlist.

Students are welcome to view these recordings as they consider which biomedical career specialties they would like to learn more about at the Symposium:
