Summer Research EXperience (REX) Program

The Summer Research EXperience is a six-week long research program offered for High School and Community College students. We aim to provide an introductory STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) research experience to students who have no formal research training beyond high school courses. This program is especially useful for students who are considering enrolling as a STEM major in college or who are taking introductory college courses (first/second year) in a STEM major. The program runs from June 26 to August 4, 2017.

If accepted, students are expected to: 1) Work 30 hours each week on research. Any time off must be approved by the REX Coordinator and your supervising faculty member. 2) Attend weekly workshops and trainings. For the most part, these will take place during your regular 30 work hours. 3) Complete your poster and report by the end of the program. This may require time outside of your regular work hours. Applications are due April 1, 2017.
