Juniors at Princeton or Manchester High School are welcome to join the next team of researchers. About 25 students from each school will be selected to be part of the program each school year.
What is required of participants in the program?
Participants will be responsible for the following activities:
1) Attending a two-day student training at the University of Cincinnati before the school year,
2) Developing a research proposal with a team of peers,
3) Implementing the chosen research design over six months (both #3 and #4 occur as an integrated part of the school day and are guided by program leaders),
4) Working with their time outside of school hours, and
5) Reporting out findings of the research during events within each home community and at the University of Cincinnati campus.
Throughout the activity cycles, students will collaborate with and receive mentorship from our extremely diverse faculty team, the majority of whom have lived experiences in the communities of the students.
