FAU's Charles E. Schmidt offers a Summer Science Institute for students 11-13 years old. The Summer Science Institute is a non-credit academic program specifically designed to meet the intellectual and cognitive needs of high-performing middle and high school students interested in discovering the world of science. The program uses a problem-based learning model to develop students’ critical thinking skills and draws from a broad range of disciplines within the sciences to maximize the potential of interdisciplinary science studies.
Class sizes are small, and students will participate in hands-on research projects and will have exposure to laboratories and expert scientists. Cost for the “Summer Science Institute” is $800 per session, which includes lunch and a T-shirt, plus a $50 application fee. The selection process for the “Summer Science Institute” is competitive, and space is limited.
The Summer Science Institute is offered in two, four-week sessions – Monday, June 15 through Friday, July 10 and Monday, July 13 through Friday, Aug. 7 – from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., at 777 Glades Road, on FAU’s Boca Raton campus.
