Real science. Real research
Our classes have been developed by researchers and customized through parental feedback. We are unique, innovative, and provide a learning environment unlike any other. Each class has one instructor and at least three college-age mentors there to help.
Curriculum: Be a Cancer Researcher!
Students will learn about cancer biology, the power of Big Data, and will discover how to access REAL cancer patient data online and present their own research. Students will also be guided by college mentors who will assist during each class.
CANCER BIOLOGY: Students will spend the first half of each class learning about Big data, scientific notation, cells, mutations, and cancer genes. During the second half of the class students will be placed in small groups with college mentors to review topics, talk about a pathway to STEM fields and college, and meet students with similar interests from around the country.
STARTING RESEARCH: Students will learn how to access REAL cancer patient data online and learn how to use data analysis tools to do their own research. They will work with their mentor and team to research a cancer of their choice, create and analyze graphs, and learn how to speak confidently about their findings.
SCIENCE COMMUNICATION: Students will present what they learned in an informal research presentation, parents are encouraged to attend to see what their student has accomplished!
