Registration has just begun for this year's CNSI Nanoscience Lab! This exciting summer workshop is geared towards high school students who have an interest in the sciences and provides a unique opportunity to explore questions similar to those currently investigated by the scientific community. This five day program teaches students the key concepts of nanoscale research with the use of fun and engaging scientific experiments, instrumentation trainings, and science and career mentorship. This program also carries 2 quarter units of UCLA course credit, and a limited number of full and partial scholarships are made available.
Due to a larger number of applicants than expected from last year's program, there will be two course sessions this year:
Session A: July 8-12
Session B: July 15-19
The activities in the NanoScience Lab require a strong science foundation in chemistry, physics, and biology. The program is designed for students going into the 10th grade level or higher next school year, but 9th graders with exceptional scientific knowledge and the ability to work productively in teams are considered on a case by case basis.
