Students excelling in honors or advanced STEM classes are encouraged to apply to our pre-college research programs. Top students from 45 states and over 30 countries have enjoyed our hands-on research programs. Students may choose day only or residential programs at three locations in downtown and suburban Boston.
For teens wanting one-week science or math opportunities, consider: Forensics, Anatomy, Sports Statistics, and Marine Biology. Students take fun, behind-the-scenes field trips. They participate in interesting activities and tours geared toward teens at Boston museums and attractions. These adventures are combined with stimulating classroom enrichment and laboratory activities. Finally, our Chemistry Edge and Physics Edge programs are designed to give students the edge they need to excel in their Fall science courses and on standardized tests. No application is needed for one-week programs.
