Here’s an incredible opportunity for high school students passionate about STEM. The New York Academy of Sciences has just launched The Junior Academy, an online STEM program that connects top performing students with STEM mentors to learn the latest in scientific research and provides opportunities for students to apply their knowledge, creativity, and skills towards real-world challenges. The mentors have been recruited from prominent research universities and leading science and tech companies. The program culminates in a two-day summit in New York City with field trips, cultural excursions, and opportunities to connect with renowned STEM leaders. Top students will be awarded cash prizes and all-expense paid trip to the summit.
The closing date for applications is 15 October 2015. The student application and full program details can be found on the official Junior Academy web site http://bit.ly/1F3f9bF.
