a symposium paper in the areas of Science,
Engineering and/or Mathematics
information on this website will be taken from
the 2020 STEM Exhibition
handbook (available here).
This information should be read carefully and
thoroughly by the student and the teacher.
Planning and selection of a STEM research project,
the method of developing a scientific paper, and

progress has been made on a STEM investigation, the
participant may exhibit his/her project at the
local school STEM Exposition. If
successful, the participant may move on to a
Chicago Public Schools Regional STEM Exposition. From
this level, the project may be chosen for
exhibit at the Citywide Chicago Public
Schools STEM Exposition.
A student researcher
at the high school level may also submit a STEM based research
paper for evaluation and possible presentation
in the Symposium. To participate in the
Symposium, a student is not required to have an
exhibit to display at the exposition, but he/she
must conduct primary STEM research as a
basis for the paper.
