chemistry class

Explore the possibility of a career in the mathematical and physical sciences. The Girls' Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics Summer Program, offered through the NYU Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, gives high school juniors the chance to work on real-world projects alongside researchers.

Program Details

NYU GSTEM is a six-week summer program for high school girls who have high aptitude in STEM subjects. Students will have the opportunity to receive mentoring from STEM professionals, as well as participate in activities such as classes, lectures, and field trips.

Students will live at home and commute to internship sites for 4.5 weeks. They will work on a small project alongside researchers, produce a brief paper about their work, and deliver a short oral presentation to their peers.

A week of preparatory lectures and workshops will precede the internship. These classes will provide experience in all STEM areas and will help students develop a professional learning community.

One day in each of the other weeks will be a "campus day" when the girls will be brought together for lectures, workshops, field excursions, and social events. Tutors will support participants and help them adjust to laboratory work, prepare their final talk and paper, and provide other intellectual and emotional supports.

NYU GSTEM is made possible by the generous support of the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. With Matthew Leingang as Principal investigator.
