The Academic Immersion Program (AIM) provides an opportunity for rising high school juniors and seniors to focus intensively on one academic topic for three weeks. In summer 2021, four tracks of AIM will be offered: Introduction to Medicine (in partnership with the Department of Medical Sciences & Education at the Boston University School of Medicine), Introduction to Experimental Psychology, Creative Writing, and Global Studies: Security, Statecraft, & Spycraft (in partnership with the Pardee School of Global Studies). Each track combines classroom work in the subject area with project-based learning activities. Students also participate in fun social activities designed for remote participants, with students from all over the country and around the world. AIM is open to remote students only in summer 2021.
