THE Overview

What is the STEM Research Program?

The STEM Research Program offers motivated high school students an opportunity to collaborate individually with a PhD mentor. This program allows students to explore the latest advancements in their chosen scientific field and create an independent research project.

Under the guidance of their Research Mentor, students have the freedom to select their area of study. Potential topics range from differential equations, combinatorics, and neuroscience to computer vision, robotic control, game theory, chemical engineering, and more. These subjects are typically covered in-depth by advanced undergraduates and graduate students.

The STEM Research Program cultivates independent and adaptable researchers who are prepared to excel in the STEM fields. The program achieves this by providing a personalized introduction to the research process, overseen by accomplished PhDs. Students engage in weekly meetings with their mentors to explore new subjects, culminating in a research paper.
