PS3 is a unique experience bringing approximately 50 highly motivated students from Hawaiʻi and other Pacific Islands together for a weekend of science discussion. Much like professional conferences, PS3 provides students the opportunity for presenting research papers to scientists and their peers.
The PS3 serves as a regional competition for students doing research to advance to the Junior Science & Humanities Symposium (JSHS). The JSHS is a national program funded by the US Departments of the Army, Navy & Air Force & sponsored by the Academy of Applied Science.
