About the Symposium
Polygence's Symposium of Rising Scholars is an bi-annual virtual academic conference where Polygence students present and share their research with their peers and experts. The Symposium also includes a College Admissions Panel and Keynote Speech.
Our Fall 2023 Symposium featured over 340 student presenters, and Dr. Julie Evans, Chief Executive Officer of Project Tomorrow and the founder of the heralded Speak Up Research Project - which annually collects and reports on the authentic views of K-12 students, parents and educators nationwide on key education issues - as our Keynote Speaker.
