    Pre-College Leadership Institute

    The New York Academy of Sciences Pre-College Leadership Institute is a rigorous 5-day program for high school students with a passion for science. Over the course of this program, students will apply the basic principles of scientific research and collaboration to develop a unique project addressing a real-world challenge within their own community. They will also develop valuable leadership, communication, critical thinking and project planning skills—all under the guidance of real-life scientists. Students will receive a certificate of completion at the end of the program, and will be equipped with the tools and know-how to implement the project in their community.
     
    Parents and/or guardians may register the student for the program. Upon confirmation of payment, the parent and/or guardian will receive an email from the Academy, which will go over next steps.

    August 14 - 25, 2017
