Are you interested in hosting a high school student in your lab? Let us know! We work with participating labs to help determine appropriate projects. High school students must be supervised at all times while working in USC labs; the expected time commitment for a supervising graduate student is 15 hours per week for the duration of the six-week program. Host labs are encouraged to involve their student in fieldwork and hands-on lab work. We are happy to meet one-on-one or organize a departmental presentation. Please contact us for more information and complete the Mentor Commitment Form


High schools around USC play an important role in encouraging their students to participate in the Young Researchers summer program. If you would like to involve your students in this program, please contact us. We typically visit high schools during the month of February to present the program to students in their science classrooms.
