Students who are currently in 10th and 11th grade are eligible to apply to this program (rising junior and senior over the summer of the program). The Carleton Summer Science Institute will help students learn to think and write like a scientist by doing science. That is, CSSI students, faculty, and Carleton undergraduate research assistants will engage in classroom and hands-on research related to faculty and student interests. Students will complete a collaborative guided research project which will culminate in a presentation at the CSSI Research Symposium held at the end of the program.
Participants will rotate through three week-long courses which focus on important concepts in the field of the faculty member in order to gain a deeper understanding about interrelation of the scientific fields. Students also will have the opportunity to participate in forums and informal discussions about emerging questions in science, ethics, public policy, science writing, and other topics of interest. Students will complete a collaborative guided research project which will culminate in a presentation at the CSSI Research Symposium held at the end of the program.
