Research in Science & Engineering

Boston University Summer Term

  • Dates: July 3 – August 12, 2016
  • Grade level: Students entering 12th grade in fall 2016

Students focused on the sciences and entering their senior year of high school are invited to join the Research in Science & Engineering (RISE) program and contribute to university-level research projects in science and engineering. RISE provides two research tracks: Research Internship and, new for 2016, Research Practicum.

Research Internship students tackle individual research projects under the mentorship of distinguished faculty, post-doctoral fellows, and graduate students. We offer hands-on research opportunities in the following areas: astronomy, biology, biomedical engineering, chemistry, electrical and computer engineering, mechanical engineering, medical laboratory research, neuroscience, physics, and psychology.

Research Practicum students conduct primary group research with seminars and laboratory activities under the guidance of Boston University faculty. Ideal for students who prefer a structured research environment, this year’s Research Practicum focuses on Molecular Biology.
