High School Summer Science Research Program
The 2013 High School Summer Science Research will be held from June 10 - July 3. Registration will open mid December 2012. The deadline to apply is March 1, 2013.
The purpose of the High School Summer Science Research Program (HSSSRP), an annual program established in 1991, is to give superior high school students hands-on research experience by working on research projects with Baylor University science professors in many disciplines. The research program occurs during the University's first session of summer school and is open to students the summer between their junior and senior year of high school.
Students are selected each year from high schools throughout the United States to be involved in this summer research program, which allows them to earn one semester hour of college credit. It is hoped that this experience will have a positive effect on student interest in careers in science disciplines. Many former participants have successfully entered challenging undergraduate programs throughout the nation, including those at Baylor. The HSSSRP offers students an excellent opportunity to experience Baylor as they begin to consider which college they want to attend.
The director of the program is Dr. Frank Mathis, Professor of Mathematics in the College of Arts and Sciences at Baylor University. Dr. Heidi Marcum, Senior Lecturer in Environmental Studies, is the Activities Coordinator.
