Summer research program at Georgia Tech for APS students

February 22, 2022 Leave a comment Go to comments

The College of Sciences at Georgia Tech is recruiting high-school students who attend Atlanta Public Schools for a new summer research program in the natural sciences.

The Summer Research Academy will match each student with a Georgia Tech laboratory in their field of interest within the sphere of natural sciences (think chemistry, biology, physics — disciplines that explore the natural world). Students will spend seven weeks completing a research project from start to finish, including reading scientific literature, planning experiments, analyzing the data they collect, and presenting their findings.

The program is open to students who will be at least 16 years old when the program begins in June. No prior research experience is required. Georgia Tech is especially interested in including students from groups that historically have been underrepresented in science and technology fields.

The Summer Research Academy is being funded by the College of Sciences, and therefore is free for participants. The application requires two essays, a high-school transcript, and two references. The deadline to apply is March 13.
