High School Science Symposium

Returning in person on Wednesday, October 4, 2023

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 tofind new treatments and cures for childhood diseases and improve the outcomes for children today.

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. We will have space for 100 students, so early registration is strongly encouraged. Registration information and details will be posted in the coming months.
