Science research placement, and the accompanying course Research in Science, are for students in grades 11 and 12 interested in working closely with individual mentors and teams of world-renowned professors and scientists to understand scientific inquiry in a real-world setting.
Research placement and coursework introduces students to experimental design, science literature, graph interpretation, public speaking, the act of creating presentations, and finding connections between science and other disciplines. Researchers also learn to connect the work they are doing in a laboratory setting to the larger, exciting “big picture” of where scientific research is today.
Researchers studied the evolution of infectious disease, conducted cancer research, studied the ecology of Lake George, NY and experimented with computer modeling.
