High Schools: Apply Now for the High School Science Research Pathways Program

Application Deadline: October 5, 2015
Contact: STEMMattersNYC@schools.nyc.gov

Are you are interested in starting or reinvigorating a Science Research program in your school? Apply Now for the High School Science Research Pathways Program! Participating teachers will facilitate a Science Research After-School Club to guide 9th or 10th grade students through the steps needed to conduct independent, long-term scientific research; develop students’ scientific literacy skills through journal research and interpretation, data analysis, written communication and oral presentations; and work with their school administration to develop or reestablish a multi-year science research program. Teachers selected to participate will attend a three-day High School Science Research Fundamentals Institute that meets Fridays and Saturdays in November 2015, and additional professional development in the winter of 2016 to support their successful rollout of a year-long science research course in 2016-17. Students from the Science Research After-School Clubs will present their research at the STEM Matters NYC Research Symposium in June 2016.
