Mission and Goals

The goal of this program is to introduce students to the importance of research, how it shapes everyday life, and how researchers engage in the production of knowledge through their inquiry.

Learned about information that would help me in college and high school. I got to get to know my group and leaders. It was overall an incredible learning experience.

My overall experience was great. I learned about excelling my writing and research skills.

The institute is challenging but pushes students to see their potential that they did not know they had.

Keep the program going. It will help many students in the future.

“I wish I could do it again.

I hope this program continues for other students.
