To foster the next generation of STEM leaders and problem-solvers
Our STEM Center is a state-of-the-art laboratory that is equipped with a wide array of advanced scientific instruments that support research across the STEM disciplines. Our lab is instructed by experts in the STEM fields. Our programs are typically designed and executed by PhD scientists and engineers who have taken a direct part in designing their respective programs.

Middle and High School students are offered a rare opportunity to do real, hands-on research in either our intensive Summer Sessions (3-weeks, 8 hrs/day) or our after-school programs (3:00-5:30PM, 4 days/week, throughout the academic year). By the fall of 2017, you must be a student in grades 7-12 or a graduating senior to participate in the Summer Sessions. Students are encouraged to submit an Abstract and a Summary Paper of their research to our Review Committee. If accepted, the student is invited to attend the AAAS Annual Meeting as a Junior Academy Member - a 4-day immersion in science. There, they will present their research at a formal Poster Session and present their research to their Junior Academy peers in either of the following two formats - Research Round Table Discussion or Formal Power Point Presentation. In addition, they will discuss their research with some of the leading scientists of the world at a formal Breakfast, this year being held on the campus of MIT. For more information, click here.
