Description: Each summer at the Rockefeller University the cultures of the research laboratory and the classroom merge. The Science Outreach program gives high school students and K-12 teachers a rare opportunity to experience the content, methods, culture and ethos of modern research through immersion in the process of scientific inquiry. Students gain mentored research experience in laboratories while also learning, through weekly seminars, the basics of communicating with their scientific peers and the lay public. Some are even included as co-authors on peer-reviewed journal articles.

This is a great summer program for high school students who have an interest in science and laboratory research. The program is for students who are at least 16 years old.
