Summer 2024

Summer 2024 Courses

Dive into discovery this summer with our exciting lineup of STEM courses! Whether you’re a rising middle schooler or a seasoned high school student, we have a program designed to ignite your passion for science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) – and maybe even spark a new interest!

Each of our programs offer a structured learning environment with two daily courses: a morning session from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm, followed by a dedicated lunch break, and an afternoon session from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm. Students in the SHSAT and Bridge programs will focus on developing a strong foundation in English Composition and Algebra I, while high school students have the flexibility to choose two courses that pique their curiosity, fostering a summer of exploration and academic growth!

This Summer, our high school students will also be participating in a unique and exciting new research-focused program called R.O.U.T.E. (Researching Optimization of Urban Transportation Environments), offered in collaboration with the NYC Dept of Transportation. The program is designed to immerse students in a multifaceted exploration of urban transportation challenges, at the intersection of the core subjects of physics, chemistry, mathematics, economics, and technology. The courses will not only provide students with subject-specific knowledge but also equip them with essential research skills, fostering critical thinking, problem-solving, and effective communication. Students will present their research findings at our Research Symposium on the final day of the program.
