Due to current, unprecedented circumstances, mentorship 2020 will be held virtually through Google Meet every Saturday.
How will this work?
Each of our qualified and trained mentors will work with a small group of participants, guiding them in a collaborative setting to understand biological concepts and formulate research questions through interactive experiments.
To allow participants to explore which aspect of biology they are most interested in, we will facilitate a rotation system of 4 major topics in biology, which will extend throughout the first 8 weeks of the program (2 weeks per topic/lab). This exposure to various topics will act as a stepping stone to later guide their personalized group research project.
For the last 4 sessions of the program, mentors will assist participants in writing a formal research paper, which we will post on our website at the end of the program. On the last day of the program, one representative of each group will share their research question with everyone, and later we will have a guest speaker who will engage participants in various biology-related topics and current research. They will also be open to answering any questions you may have about high school or STEM in general.
Our program will start on September 4th with the orientation and end on December 18th with our symposium. Please refer to the calendar below for specific dates. You can add our calendar to Google Calendar if you press the “+” button in the bottom right corner.
