tjSTAR is a day-long symposium run like a professional conference. Students present research project results; professionals from government, industry, and academia discuss their own work and help students explore career options. This helps to prepare TJ’s students, but requires community involvement, particularly from local STEM professionals who share their passion, work, expertise, experience and career advice in a series of 50 minute presentation sessions. Companies and organizations also demonstrate current research projects and products in our all-day Exhibition/Demonstration Hall (past exhibitors include Leidos, Microsoft, Palantir, and Northrop Grumman Cyber Academy).
