Camp College is an intensive three day/two night workshop designed for rising high school seniors and juniors. Paired with mentors, participants will learn about all aspects of the college search and application process, experience life in the residence halls, learn about financial aid, standardized test exams and have a lot of fun! At the end of Camp College, we expect that the students will be equipped with the tools to navigate the college application process. And best of all, there is no cost to students to attend this amazing camp! All materials are usually in May.
Fox Chase Cancer Center, in partnership with the College of Science and Technology at Temple University, is offering an intensive 5-week laboratory training program called the Teen Research Internship Program (TRIP) Initiative for select high school students from Philadelphia and the surrounding communities. The program offers a hands-on training experience in a science lab to increase both student excitement about science and to help prepare them for future careers in science and medicine.
The next TRIP course will be held in the Science Education Resource Center on Temple University’s main campus in Philadelphia on Tuesdays and Thursdays from July 10, 2018 through August 9, 2018. After the in-lab portion of the course concludes, students will present their work at a scientific symposium on Thursday August 16, 2018. Two sessions of the program will be offered where Session A is from 8:30 am-1:30 pm and Session B is from 12-5 pm (Note: both sessions overlap from 12-1:30 pm). Up to 8 students will be enrolled in each session.
Importantly, this program is free for all students. Our previous sessions of the program have shown it to be transformative to students, giving them a much needed peek into the science world that both excites their imagination and helps with career path decisions.
Instructions on how to apply can be found athttp://www.tripinitiative.com/. We are looking for bright, talented and motivated students that can commit to all 5 weeks of the program and that want to learn more about research.
Discover Week runs June 25-28, 2019. The program includes an orientation session for participants, and an activity schedule from 8 am – 4pm. The program is for students entering into their junior or senior year and who have a minimum GPA of 3.0.
