ARC–Oak Ridge National Laboratory 2015 Summer Math-Science-Technology Institute and Summer Science Academy


The application process is now complete for two ARC–Oak Ridge National Laboratory programs to be held in summer 2015: A high school math-science-technology institute, which is a two-week program for students and teachers; and a middle school science academy, which is a one-week program just for students. Both programs are all expenses paid and offer the opportunity to work with world-class scientists doing real science!

The application period for both 2015 summer programs closed in March, and applicants have received notification of acceptance. All teachers and high school students designated as alternates for the 2015 math-science-technology institute will be notified by Friday, June 19, if they are accepted into the program. All middle school students designated as alternates for the 2015 science academy will be notified by Friday, June 26, if they are accepted into the program.

Those interested in applying for either program's summer 2016 session should contact their state's ARC program manager in December 2015 or January 2016.
