Experience College Life Firsthand!
Frontiers offers soon-to-be high school juniors and seniors two or four weeks of hands-on classes and labs, plus an exploration of the humanities. Live on campus. Eat in the dining hall. Enjoy workshops, field trips, performances, and activities with students across the United States and around the globe. It makes for one unforgettable summer!
Frontiers is a unique experience – you spend two weeks immersed in what you love. From chemistry and math to cybersecurity and engineering, you’ll complete hands-on projects with WPI faculty and grad students in state-of-the-art facilities on campus. In each two-week session, participants select one STEM specialty. Be sure to rank your top three choices when applying! Check out the course descriptions for more information.
Humanities & Arts Workshops
WPI is much more than a tech school, so it only makes sense that Frontiers extends beyond STEM exploration. Along with testing your video game, making progress in your chemistry project, or putting the finishing touches on your team’s robot, you’ll have the chance to further explore your passions through writing, music, art, or even magic. Check out the course descriptions for more information on selecting your Humanities & Arts workshop.
The Research Mentorship Program is a competitive, six-week summer program that engages qualified, high-achieving high school students from all over the world in interdisciplinary, hands-on, university-level research. Students will be paired up with a mentor (graduate student, postdoc, or faculty) and choose a research project from a large list of disciplines offered by the program each year.
In addition to gaining a deep relationship with their mentor, they will learn about research techniques, gain insight into professional research-based opportunities, and mature their academic goals. The lecture series – GRIT talks – will connect students to some of the best minds among the UCSB research community who present on their ground-breaking research and innovative technology. Along with these academic benefits, the students will be immersed in university life and networked with equally ambitious and curious peers.
Program Dates: June 24 – August 4, 2018
Applications are now open. To apply click HERE.
The Science & Engineering Research Academy is a dynamic, 4-week residential and commuter summer program that introduces qualified high school students to the research enterprise through project-based, directed research in STEM-related fields. Students will take a 4-unit university course where they choose and develop a research topic specific to the track they select, under the direction of an instructor who is conducting active research in that field.
Students will develop academic and professional skills by presenting their research findings in a capstone seminar, networking with peers, and experiencing university life in a challenging environment. The lecture series – GRIT talks – will connect students to some of the best minds among the UCSB research community who present on their ground-breaking research and innovative technology.
