THE Overview

What is the STEM Research Program?

In the STEM Research Program, ambitious high school students collaborate one-on-one with a PhD mentor. You’ll learn about the cutting edge of your scientific field of interest, and you will create your own research paper.

You’ll choose your area of investigation with the guidance of your Research Mentor. Example topics include astrophysics, quantum mechanics, neuroscience, artificial intelligence, robotic control, game theory, genetic engineering, and many more – all topics usually studied by advanced undergraduates and graduate students.

Upon completing the STEM Research Program, you will be a self-reliant, adaptive researcher ready to thrive as a scholar at university. Your personalized introduction to the research process is guided by world-class PhDs; your mentor is sourced exclusively from the Top 20 Universities (US News).

Additionally, after weekly meetings with your mentor to discuss new topics and your research paper, you’ll receive a written evaluation from your mentor, useful for applications to advanced internships and top universities.
