SIP was definitely one of my most rewarding academic experiences thus far. It is from SIP that I gained my love for science and my respect of the research process.
Michelle Deng, Student
Not only was I able to really dive into the exciting world of research with my very own project, but also I was able to join a community of other student researchers, working together and helping each other to make advancements and new findings.
Andrew Luo, Student
SIP is a great program that provides lifelong benefits to high school students. The mentors not only guide the students in their scientific research, but also serve as role models for the students.
