To provide high school students from traditionally underrepresented minority backgrounds the opportunity to develop a better understanding and appreciation of science by exposing them to an educational environment that is conducive to learning, motivating, challenging, and fun.
The Summer Science Academy Program is a two-week science enrichment program that offers a series of lectures, labs, and field experiences for high school students. These "hands on" experiences are designed to heighten students' interest in science, increase awareness of careers in science and healthcare, and introduce and/or reinforce some principles of science. This program is for students entering the 9th and 10th grades. Topics covered in the program consist of, but are not limited to:
- Physics/ Chemistry/ Biology
- Human Anatomy
- Human Diseases
