Thomas Jefferson University


SummerScience@Jefferson is a 4-week program which aims to foster an appreciation of the role of science in everyday life, to promote an informed understanding of scientific issues that appear in headlines in the news, and to familiarize students with the vital and expanding field of biomedical sciences. The instructors for SummerScience@Jefferson are faculty members of the various colleges at Jefferson (Philadelphia University + Thomas Jefferson University) who are passionate about sharing their knowledge with high school students through lectures, discussion, and hands-on laboratory experiences. The culmination of the program is a student presentation day, during which the students present formal presentations on a topic of their choice, which may be based on theoretical knowledge, laboratory experiences, and possibly interactions and observations with Jefferson researchers.
